Radeon 4850 at $180 aleady

At a local FRY's store, they have the HD 4850 cards going for $180 off the shelf!
I almost bought it. The price is good, its right there in a small box. I was originally looking at paying $130 for the 9600GT 2 months ago for my upgrade over my OLD 7600GT, so the $50 extra would be worth it.
But I didn't buy it because of its single-slot cooling system that is NOISY (as they have said in the reviews).
So I may opt for a 4870 or wait for more 4850 cards to come ot market.

The thermal paste shipped with stock graphics cards and CPUs is notoriously low quality. I saw a review (can't remember from who) where they lowered the temps (and as a result, noise) on the 4850 by 10 to 15 degrees C, simply by removing the original paste and replacing with Arctic Silver Ceramique (small syringe retails for less than $10).
I did the same thing on my 2900XT (but using Arctic Silver 5), and now the fan never revs up over 33% (way quieter).
