After i checked out best buy's return policy, i came to the conclusion that i could go buy the x800pro (or any videocard) use it and return it >30 days from the date i bought it and get my $ back. this way i can determine if the card is really what i want, then when i return it i can buy a 9800pro, see how good that card is and then be able to come to the conclusion if i really need a x800pro....
what do you guys think about this?

I would get it at CompUSA if you have one near you. They have a warranty that you can purchase that actually begins from the date of purchase (not when the mfg warranty runs out 3 years down the road). Just get a year warranty and trade it in for the best thing next year.
I don't see a problem with it, and not because it's best buy or whoever. These places have a "no questions asked" return policy, which basically means if you don't like the product for whatever reason, you can return it. It seems to me that what you're proposing isn't considered wrong to them, so I think you'll be ok. I recently returned a video card that I purchased there ~20 days ago, and I got a full refund. The only thing they asked is if it was broken. I say go for it.
Well if you return it in say... just under one year... What do you think the chances are they still carry that particular card in stock. The other thing is you can say the card nuked your motherboard and all the good motherboards are PCI-E, so you will need to get a differant card...

I asked three techs there if a particular gigabit switch they sold supported jumbo frames (which gives true gigabit speeds) and the guys either went "Uhhh..." or one guy tried to cover his tracks by bull****ting and saying it should support it. BWAHAHAH... incompetents.
