    Radeon rebates

    Even though I've heard a few people complaining about little things here and there (which can be said for just about any video card), I'm fairly impressed with what I've read so far about the Radeon cards. My brother's looking to possibly upgrade his video card over Christmas (*ahem* guinnea pig) so I was thinking of maybe recommending one of these to him. The thing is, he doesn't want to ask for a very expensive card. He'd like to keep it under $150 if possible. I'm also recommending possibly a GeForce2 MX, but I don't want to get into one of those debates right now.

    I've heard there is a $50 rebate for some of the DDR Radeons. I couldn't find any reference to it on their site. Is that from just a few particular stores or is that from ATI? And does anybody know if there are any SDR rebates? That would probably be a smart move on ATI's part since it would put them squarely in the same price bracket as MX cards.

    I may have answered my own question a bit here. I forgot about big online vendors offering discounts to first-time customers or purchases over a certain amount. Buy.com has a 32MB Radeon DDR for $162.95. They also have a $30 off coupon for any purchase over $150. So 162.95-30=$132.95. Add $5.48 for standard shipping and the total comes to $138.43. Not bad for a relatively high end card if you ask me. Still, if you know of any other rebates I'd be interested.
