Default Price Drop On HD 3850 & 3870?

Source

Quote:
ATI IS GOING TO drop prices on the 3850 and 3870 in the next day or two. This is not a short term thing, it is a permanent cut.

The price on the 3850/512 is going to sink to $145 or below, and the 3870/512 should hit $159 or less. At that money, many may ask, why bother with the 3850?

In any case, these are screamingly good deals. You can buy three 3870s for the price of a 3870X2, or three and a mobo for less than a GX2. Not bad.
Even if it's from the Inquirer, I don't see why it shouldn't be done. That would be a great deal for Crossfiring on the cheap.

yup, saw this the other day. Price drop is supposed to be immediate, so I'm hoping there will be something next week.

If you can afford an HD 3850, it really isn't that hard to wait and save $15-20.
