Just opened up the friday Fry's ad on page three I see retail 9800xT (ATI) going for $188. I guess they are anticipating the new cards coming out really soon. Just wondering if this card still comes with HL2 and also will the new cards come with it??

Note: ad in Phx, AZ

Any word on the Houston Fry's site?

Also, the 9800XT is faster than the 9800 pro, right? it's the SE that's slower... (?)

:( Why must I suffer this torture!!!?!?

I need a new card so bad and the biggest deal ever is at a store that is hundreads of miles from me.


[edit] There's no way a best buy or circuit city would price match this because I don't have a Fry's ad?

they probably would call b/c of the huge price difference. best buy had to call k-mart when i wanted to pricematch star wars episode I dvd for 4.99 and they had it for 21.99

Did you ask them to check the price for you on the computer? Did you bring it to the cash register and ask them to check the price for you? The people in the front probably would not know about video cards. The people in the back (or wherever the computer/video cards are) would probably know a lot more and would lie to the consumer so that they could get the deal. Just my thoughts, not bashing on every CSR, but some are JERKS!

GHEY!:mad:

just got back from BB, CC, and CompUSA. None of them would pricematch the ad. The sku on the ad is for the 9800pro128mb. I didn't try frys cause I don't want to drive that far, and by the time I would get there, they would of figured it out anyways.

I just looked at the SOcal ad on the internet, which was probably fixed, but it had no such offer. Too bad about it being a typo! :(:(

If someone does this for me too, I will ALSO give you a great fee for doing it for me, i will pay for: The card itself, tax, price to ship it to me, and a fee for getting it. PM me if interested!~ Also, on houston, I opened up my frys ad, nothing, it doesnt even advertise the 9800xt today. I wonder if you could print it off the link the other person gave us, and show it to CC or BB?

**Update**

First I went to Fry's out here in phoenix, i went through a long line to finally get up to the manager and talk to him about the coupon and he of course said it was a typo. I proceed to tell him that he had to honor the coupon if he had the item in stock. I was very persistent but he continued to say he wouldn't give it to me. I pulled out my cell phone "im calling my lawyer" And pretened like i was actually gonna call someone. He stopped me and said "You know what we did have a few of those in stock but I dont think we have any more."

Ten Minutes later he comes back with the inevitable "sorry all out" bull$hit. So we settled with a $10 gift certificate.

I then went to Compusa and grabbed the display box for a 9800xt. I looked for the counter person who looked the dumbest and tried to trick them into selling me the card for the price-matched price. He called over the manager and apparently other people came in trying to do the same thing I was. Oh well

Deals like these are so obviously not going to be honored. I have no idea why people even waste the time if Fry's is more than 5 minutes away.

That was a good waste of half a day and I applaud you for trying to rip off comp USSR

The ad didn't say no rainchecks. I would have asked for one. If this is a typo, what was the price supposed to be ? Or was it supposed to be a 9800pro for that price ? I know Fry's has the built by ATI 9800 pros for 249. I wouldn't put it past Fry's to have done this on purpose just to get people in the store. I'm in Phoenix too. Which location did you go to ? Thunderbird or Baseline ? Thanks.

ya one of the people at the sac one came over and asked if i was looking for that card. I said ya I already read the sign. He kind of laughed and said sorry that must suck.

Seriously thinking of going to best buy right now but I bet someone already tried to price match it.
