Default VisionTek Radeon HD 3870 X2

Before starting off, is this a forum from USA or a global computer discussion forum? Is this the latest and best Radeon 3870 X2 around for $449.99? My region does not distribute any VisionTek products. Is it worth the wait for 4870 and how does the Vision 3870 X2 compared with the 4870?

There exists only rumor and hopes for the 4870 X2 currently, wait for reviews.

However, it does look promising.

I have never used VisionTek. I have seen them on Newegg, and Best Buy sells them. It's not a name that I see many people use around here, so I don't know if many can vouch for them. That doesn't make them bad, but unknown.

Visiontek is one of the few companies that offers lifetime warranties for ATI products, but how quick they are to void a warranty, i dont know.
Nothing to see here.
