Default Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4890 Vapor-X for $185.24, Toxic for $204.24 after $15 store coupon and Bing.com cash back

Update 7/6/09 - Looks like Ebiz.com has pulled that great price on the Toxic, it is now showing $229.99 before discounts. Shipping is now free for both products. The Vapor-X "Deal of the Week" pricing should remain for the rest of the week or until they run out of product. These cards have been tough to find in stock. This deal is is best considered by someone looking at cooling solutions which may offer reduced noise and/or offer better cooling than a stock 4890, ie for overclocking, noise minimizing applications.

ORIGINAL POST NOW EDITED TO REFLECT PRICING AS OF 7/6/09

Pricing for both cards now includes free shipping!

1. Apply $15 off $100 store coupon FIREWORKS15 (expires 7/9/09)

2. Apply 5% Bing.com cash back

Gets you an updated net price of $204.24 (now with free shipping) for the Toxic and a net price of $185.24 (free shipping) for the Vapor-X.

To get the 5% cash back you must first register and log into Microsoft's Bing.com (formerly Live.com) shopping/cash back site.

Bing.com Shopping

Go to the list of participating merchants, find and click through to SuperBiiz. This will bring you to Ewiz.com and you can find the Sapphire 4890s here:

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4890 Toxic $229.99 @ Ewiz.com

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4890 Vapor-X $209.99 @ Ewiz.com

May offer quieter and/or better overclocking potential with the Vapor-X cooling solutions. The Toxic is already getting close to the limits of air cooling I think.

There have been a few questions on the AT Hot Deals forum as to whether the vendor has an adequate stock management system, but it does seem as though they do warehouse the items they offer for sale. Since the card just went on sale you have a good chance of getting one right away.

If you are interested in lower priced options with reference cooling, check out my original 4890 thread -
