Default HD3870 $215 @ Best Buy online... yes, Best Buy

VisionTek - ATI RADEON HD3870 Graphics Card - 900202

Good price, even if it is BB. Definitely a cheap way to get a great Crossfire setup going. The card is VisionTek, and is only available online. Seems they are selling out everywhere, so I was surprised at this one.

BB also has the 3850 for $170.

Ha Good luck. no one has been able to get their hands on them. And with NewEgg jacking up the price even before they are restocked, many won't get to.

Drivers are always the problem. Remember when the 8800's came out. it took weeks to get the drivers right. AMD just released a new set of Catalyst drivers, though. The 7.11 drivers include the 3800 series.

wow...so same deal with 8800gt, i guess ppl just bought em and are reselling them on ebay i bet.
Well im good with nvidia and i think ill stick with em for a while...
nvida is quite fast on having new drivers, which i like and hate at times.

Do any of you remember me mentioning awhile back, about when I did work experience in a tech shop that shafted people?

Well I was in there today, and they had an 8800GT on display, and I thought wow! How the **** did they get that. *ambles over to take a look at the price tag*









£369.99

Jesus in a Handbasket :freak:

*Edit* this is kinda on topic, both are tech shops
