Default Radeon 3870 for under $200

Price has already started falling....

This looks like a pretty good deal. $191.99 for the card, $6 for ground shipping ($197.98 total). Comes with a lifetime warranty as well. Only downside is that it ships in 5-7 days.Although If you have a microcenter near you, your in luck

Hope this helps!

wow that's a pretty sweet deal... I've pretty much decided though to stick with my GTX even after I get my 22 or 24 inch monitor. I'll upgrade my gpu when I get vista, and need the extra DX10 power.


On a side note, I got my replaced q6600 today so now I just need to get my replaced mobo and gtx and my computer will be up and running ! Hopefully my new proc has a lower vid# than my old one, which had a 1.3.
