    According to Tech Bargains, the cheapest I can find it for is $259 (through Dell Home). But I shop @ Target fairly regularly, so the $50 GC is basically knocking it down to $249. A few quick questions/comments:

    I really have to rig this thing to be wireless... And it looks like I'm going to have to drop $80 on a wireless adapter?!? Sheesh. Total cost just went up to $330.

    First purchases will be GTA4, Red Dead Redemption, and... possibly Split/Second, I was very impressed with the demo.

    What am I missing?

    Well, If its not too far, You could get something like a 100 feet ethernet cable for about $15. Its much cheaper than the wifi adapter and it will lag MUCH less.

    Your missing; Gears of War 2, Modern Warfare 2, and when you buy GTA 4, get TBoGT off the Xbox live game market.
    Also I bought my wireless adapter for $60 online, I don't remember where, but if your gonna put the xbox close to your router, then the ethernet cord that comes with an Elite should be enough. And you'll need a live card which is $60.

    Alright, I bought the last 120 GB Elite they had. I picked up RDR, and that's it for now, I think I'll download a metric shit-ton of demos and then buy the other stuff. Oh yeah, I couldn't stomach spending 80 bucks on the wireless adapter, so I dropped under 10 for a 25' CAT5 cable that just made it from the router to the living room.
