    Yeah, we are using local farmer's markets when possible, and Walmart for pretty much everything else.

    In Connecticut, at least in my immediate area, Walmart is not so much groceries.
    Farmers Markets tend to upscale expensive, good and fresh though.

    There is at least one ALDI's (Albuquerque), a limited selection mostly own brand small supermarket in N M. Worth a look. Some of their stuff is very good, some not so much.

    New Mexico I know mostly from Matt Helm and Louis L'Amour.

    Okay, I can order today. I'm not a much of a big gamer anymore, but with the 6870 being so close to the 6850 in price, it's hard to say no. Is there enough of a performance difference to justify the $15 or so extra?

    Specifically, this is the one I'm looking at.

    There's definitely enough of a game performance boost to justify it.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150515 does make the 6870 look better.

    In favor of a waiting game the GTX 650 is rumored soon, no idea if (the 640 is an expensive 440 upgrade) it will impact this price point.

    Ordered the 6870 from Amazon. With free shipping it should get here between the 23rd and 25th. I'm jazzed.

    Edit: Sorry, I was a little too excited, and forgot to thank everyone for helping me with this. So, thank you, all.
