    "Both machines have a Sapphire HD4850 512GB currently installed in them."

    Wow! Can you use them as RAM disks? ;)

    Fry's B&M has the Polk RM6750 for $200 through Thursday. Assuming your sales tax is less than 10%, it should come out cheaper than the deal linked in this article, although you will have to drive there and get it. Fry's have been running this same deal off and on for quite a long time, actually. Reply

    u bought ur teenage daughter a 4890 for a HTPC??? jebus can u be MY dad?!?! (and im 31)

    Seriously though, wouldnt it be better to post this on the forum instead of on the front page of Anandtech since u'r promoting a sale by a 3rd party? Are you guys getting commission to advertise or what??

    Gary is 72 years old.. his daughter is 43 last I heard.

    And he's got 7 (or maybe 8) kids.

    I'd hope a PhenomII 940, 8GB RAM, and a GTX275/HD4890 would be able to handle social networking sites for significantly more than the next 2 years. Reply

    Although an HD4890 may be a good deal for the price you paid, the nvidia card needs time for supplies to build up. Prices are at or above MSRP. The gtx260-216 reference card could be had for about $100 cheaper than what you paid for the gtx275 reference card(including rebates and games). That has better price/performance ratio for me, especially as the article started out being about "deals".
    I know you said you succumbed to the marketing pressures. I have done the same- purchased items as soon as they hit the market, only to have buyers remorse after seeing prices drop over the next several months. However the present economy has made me a more patient consumer.
    I did see that Phenom II 940 deal on ZZF over the weekend, and it was a great deal. I would have had to get a mb to go with it though, and I am not ready for that yet.

    Well, last year or two my situation with hardware (actually, with MONEY) had improved quite a bit, though even now I wouldn't be able to afford ALL that, my wife would probably hang me on a nearby tree ;) :D

    But today I finaly DID order that HD4890 (reference clocked) and two WD 640GB Black drives I was hoping for for quite some time..

    I actualy upgraded graphics from HD4870 (512MB) which I sold some 2 months ago.. so call me crazy :) But I did sell that 4870 card before all the price drops started, so I had to add just ~25$ to the money I got from the 4870's sale.

    All in all, nice article.. should be more of article like these, with a REAL world scenario, and someone actually spending the money, so that you can get a feeling "that man really cares about what he just bought"..

    Oh, and I'm glad that he too picked HD4890 for his daughter. While I do gaming more in the line of his son, I'm more into HT setup as his daughter, and don't care a bit about encoding video. So I believe my choice will also satisfy me.

    Just one thing lacking from this story, and which I need.. A shopping spree for monitor with 1920x1080 (or 1200) resolution :) Now that a new card is on the way, I REALLY need a new display to use up al lthat horsepower :D

    We have 3 PCs in the family, one is 780G, one G965, and the one I used for gaming has 6800GS.
    Upgrading an HD4850? You're crazy)))))))))

    That was almost my thoughts.

    I could barely afford the $43 I spent on my 8600GTS (NOT GT!!).

    I picked up the HD4890 (non OC model) yesterday from ZZF for $179 AR (price was a decent $199 before rebate). I didn't "really" need a new card, but the price was hard to pass up, and it will be nice to play all games at 1920 x 1200. Our house follows the trickle down theory - my oldest son gets my current HD4830, while my younger son gets my even older X850XT. Reply

    Lucky bastard; I hope ZZF honors that price. Unless MSI cut them one hell of a deal, $199 looked more like a pricing error than it did a deliberate sale (it's now "out of stock" and back up at $219.) Reply
  • kmmatney - Monday, April 20, 2009 - link

    Yeah, I hope the sale goes through. I paid with Paypal, and the money hasn't been refunded yet, so things are looking good so far. I can't wait to get the card. Reply

    Can you be my dad? Reply

    i was thinking the same thing. my dad gives me some sweet hardware sometimes (got a 9800PRO, 2900PRO,2 400GB 7200.10 barracudas, and a 22 inch LG W2252TQ monitor, as well as other stuff), but that listing just takes the cake. best i have been able to get out of my dad in the last year or so is a monitor which is actually saving us on our power bill vs the 21 inch CRT i was using before, and some bottles of BBQ sauce from texas, which he gets from business trips lol. why must he be a software consultant! all the stuff he works with hands on is under NDA and it's not of much any use to me anyways Reply
