Except the 9800 was not at a price between the 8600 and 8800

I recently got a GTX 460 for $130 on promotion. Now I don't feel left behind near as bad as I though I would

The online street price on med power cards is nice and low, but I wonder how many people pay double at retail chins and big builders like Dell. They sold the crrap out of 240s and 250s which were not very impressive at all for what they sold them for.
