Default Lets say 8800GT never came back in stock, Second choice?

^^ Right now, I can't seem to find an 8800gt that will stay instock long enough for me to pull the ol' card out. What would be the second choice around here? Same price range or lower!

Either the HD3850 or 3870. With the HD3850 being about $100 lower than the 3870 or 8800GT.

The HD3870 is a good choice for around the same price.

The 8800GT still is a better card for the money...however the HD3870 is a good choice still and also it helps give AMD some profits.
