    it looks like a good card, New Egg is the place to go to get the best deals, but you should look that card up on http://www.pricewatch.com , maybe there are other places that might have it cheaper.

    check some of the benchmark websites.

    there are quite a few variations in price and quality of 6800 cards.
    the difference between a $300 card and a $375 card could be very small whereas the difference between a $350 and a $370 card could be pretty large.
    sometimes the higher price is there to cover the 'free' software included.

    sometimes the price difference is there just because the company is trying to confuse you and get more money.

    try
    http://www.anandtech.com
    http://www.hardocp.com
    or
    http://www.tomshardware.com

    one of them sites should cover your card somewhere so check its benchmark results against the higher priced cards. sometimes you will find your paying $70 more and you will get like 3fps extra in your games.
