I think Staples only price matches the "big boys", ie Onvia, Buy.com, Office Depot, etc.

Have you all seen that the Voodoo based cards will no longer be supported? Check out the gotapex news board. May want to consider that before purchasing one.

actually x3dfx (comprised of pissed-off former 3dfx employees in ireland) will be supporting their cards. see their site at http://www.x3dfx.com for more info. that said, i'd suspect that the retailers will be putting the remaining cards on clearance in the near future, so i'd hang out for a bit.
here's an update from http://www.voodooextreme.com
It looks like all of the 3dfx products are being pulled from store shelves. Chuck "mojo" Wastell sent a memo which was sent to all Best Buy departments pertaining to having all 3dfx products pulled off of the shelves, as well as discountinued technical support. Here it is:
3dfx announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement with Nvidia Corporation to sell to them most of 3dfx's assets. With this agreement it has also been announced that 3dfx will discontinue techincal support after Feb. 15th. Concidering the nature of this product, we feel that continuing to provide this product to our customers will jeopardize their satisfaction with both BBY and the product long term.
We are asking that you pull all 3dfx skus listed below off of your shelves and hold in the warehouse. The product will then be sent during our January brown goods return. Your complete execution is needed on this.

Remember, games that are coming out now started 6 months to 2 years ago. Expect the Voodoo line to be "supported" for another year at least. Besides, the Voodoo 3, 4, and 5 are all very stable cards with the drivers as is anyway.
