Default 3870XT Review

Looks like excellent performance for the money. Overclocked it performs slightly better than a stock 8800GT, almost close to a GTX. I will most likely be getting one of these very shortly and pumping some more voltage through it

the HD 3870 x2 is coming out at the end or early next year. It should double the price of the 3870 right now, but i could be very wrong lol.

im gonna try to get the 3870 x2 myself.
