Yeah you'll be paying a $30 restock fee + shipping... Then another $30 + shipping to get the 9800 GTX+.. Really isn't worth it.

If you need a card now I'd just return the 8800 and pick up a 4850, personally.

Good information, thanks. Yeah I can see you have an HD4850 so i'll take your word for it. The only thing stopping me was the heat, but I think the hotfix just solved that problem.

If you get a nice rep you may not have to. I have returned two things just becuase i didint need them to newegg in the past 3 years or so and 2 of the 3 times they didn't charge me a re-stocking fee. Just act like your a total noob and you only have AGP or something and it was of coarse pci-e. I did this once and i think they felt bad becuase i acted upset and there was no restocking fee.

EDIT: ALSO DON'T OPEN IT! This is mainly what a re-stocking fee is because once it's open they can't sell it straight from their site again. However if it is they have to send it back to the manufacturer and they loose money and will be very much less inclined not to charge you a restocking fee.
