P650 retail source other than Shop Matrox.com???

Postposted on Sun Aug 17, 2003 3:56 pm

Hmmmm....I'm thinking seriously about going LCD but first I need to upgrade from G550 to P650 so I can pass the G550 to my daughter's system so she can have High Quality DVI as well. Her current card is VGA only.

Anyway I figured since the P series cards have been out for a while now that I could get one from Newegg or Mwave. No dice! All they have is G series and the Parhelia itself.

Anyone found a cheaper source for the P650 than Matrox? Shopmatrox wants $169.00.

Pricegrabber.com has one listing for almost $159. I'd buy direct for that small of a difference.

The three on Pricewatch.com are $161, $169 and $171 (rounded). Just buy direct.

Agreed. If I can't get it for say....150 + free (or almost free) shipping than I'll just order direct.

A bit after the fact, but Newegg has the P750 now for $227 shipped.

Also, for current or previous G-Series owners, Matrox has a special offer which knocks down the price and makes shipping free. :D
