8800GT is around %15 faster than HD3870
AnandTech: ATI Radeon HD 3870 & 3850: A Return to Competition

And about power consumption, the HD3870 consume less power only at idle. At full load they consume about the same.

About price, the HD3870 is not always cheaper. You can get 8800GT 512MB for $225 from NCIXUS.

I don't agree that HD3870 is better in muti-GPU setup. This is questionable

That's a deal on the 8800gt. It'll probably go up. Plus, with the 4000 series on the way, and the 3870x2, AMD might do a price cut.

COD4 is a nvidia optimized game, I thought:?

The 8800gt at NCIX is out of stock. NCIX's cheapest option for shipping is $15 so that = 240 shipped vs 3850 w/512 DDR3 = 196 shipped. I think I will stick with ATI the performance loss shouldnt be to bad if i throw on some ram heatsinks, apply some Shin Etsu with the Zalman cooler and OC it.

Thanks for the help
