    Do any BBA 9800np come with Samsung?

    Just got a 9800np from Circuit City for 199 and it came with Infineon ram. Do any of the BBA come with samsung?

    Yes, many of them do. Getting one with Samsung is pure luck.
    I use an iBook. :)

    It seems that fewer are coming with Samsung chips now. It's basically just luck of the draw.

    So would it be worth it to try and take it back and get another?

    You really have nothing to lose. The worse that would happen is you'd get another 9800np with infineon ram

    ATI was smart enough to stop manufacturing 9800np with samsung chips so from most of the stores, you will get Infeneon. I believe e-bay to be the greatest place to fine a Samsung chip 9800np

    B&M stores wont have many of the Samsung based NP's left anymore. However, I got a Samsung one at CC less than a week ago, so there is still a chance
    If you want to build something thatís never been built before, you may have to knock down a wall or two.

    Main System:
    ---------------------
    Core i5 2500K @ 4.2GHz - AsRock Z68 Pro3-M - 8GB Corsair XMS3 - Procolor 6950 2GB - Corsair HX520 PSU - Crucial M4 128GB/WD Black 750GB

    HTPC:
    ---------------------
    Core i3 2100 - Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 - 8GB Corsair XMS3 - Corsair CX430 PSU - Crucial M4 64GB/Seagate Green 2TB - Ceton Quad Cablecard Tuner

    I got a BBA 9800 NP today from CC. I did not check the RAM though. Looks like I will be opening the case back up!!

    **Edit** Mine Has Infenon Ram I'll let you know how high it goes.

    I have a 9800 NP BBA with Samsung ddr on it, the card is a Dell pull.

    I scored a good deal as I traded my 9800 pro with sammy 2.8 for the 9800np with sammy but I also got $72 cash on top. My card is flashed and running Pro speeds but I have yet to bother trying for more cause right now it just aint needed
