Default 3870x2

Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H387X2F1GNP Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB (512MB x 2) 512-bit (256-bit x 2) GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Why is this 449$?

Just wanted to check up on them, and noticed a ridiculous price.

I wouldn't pay more than $150 for one right now. Maybe even less considering 4850's are going for $125 and its performance is close.

Hanging in there. A few other friends of mine just got laid off so we've been having sleepovers. Sucks right now. I can't wait to get back on my feet and start building and upgrading again. It's pretty sucky not having a system you know. Where's the Mexican? I never seem to catch him on here. Maybe I should go bother him on aim.
