Not going to play BF4 on ultra with this but if you're on a super tight budget and you just play some casual stuff this is a great deal. 2GB is a nice bonus too.
This is a boredom side project but I'm looking at maybe grabbing the BF Prodigy and doing a small form factor build with my current parts (see sig). Problem is my board (Asus P8Z68-V) is full ATX.

The key word here is "Retail". Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc. My company is an Intel Platinum partner meaning more than $200K worth of Intel purchases a year and we don't qualify for this.
