I thought this deal was too awesome to not post, so I apologize if it's a repost. Newegg is having a "back to school sale" with some awesome deals - undisputedly the best was a EVGA GeForce 9800 GT HDMI 512MB 256-bit DDR3 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card. Two of these babies SLI'd will run almost any PC game at high/max settings, including Crysis. Just make sure you have the minimum 400w PSU or ~650+ for SLI'd.
The lowest I've seen these go was 90, so this is a hell of a deal for (still) one of the better cards on the market. One rebate per household/billing address though, however EVGA is usually pretty good with rebates.
For the other deals (including decently priced DDR3 ram)
Nerd talk for comparison to other cards.
Two SLI'd 9800GTs are comparable to 1 GTX460, which is the most economical $200 card. For $230 you can get the 1GB GTX460, which is slightly more powerful than two SLI'd 9800 GTs, however the drawback to the 9800's is the lack of DirectX 11 support. Above the 460 is the 480, which retails at around $500 dollars. I *believe* 2 460's are a bit better than one 480.
As for Radeon, 1 Radeon HD 5850 ($300) compares to a GTX460 ($230), which compares to two DirectX 11-less 9800GTX's ($100 if you can get two rebates)
I personally picked up one to throw in my setup, which I was going to completely rebuild. I think this will be able to postpone my rebuild for another 6-18 months.
