    I saw this today. I'm really tempted to pick one up to replace my 1900XT. I'm not sure if the 3870 will have much/any performance difference. I am going to do a whole new box next year anyway.

    The hd3870 is alot faster then your x1900xt. Heck it is a good deal faster then my 3850. I might pick up one at that price.

    I was trying to hold out for the 4850, now I'm not so sure. What do you guys think?

    I already have a 2x 2900 Pro setup so I am going to skip this. If I did not have what I already have, that would be a great deal.

    I saw this in best buys ad yesterday so it was almost a must to run out and buy it up. This is going to be an upgrade that will make me happy but I still need to get a new proc because i just gave myself a new bottleneck.

    I feel sorry for who ever wanted one of these cause only certain stores have them and online they are sold out. Glad i bought mine last night.

    I went and picked up one this morning. They had 2-3 of them. I knew that if I would have waited I'd regret it. I'm very pleased so far, well woth the $137 it cost me.

    That's a decent price for the 3870.

    I've got the Visiontek 3870X2 in my system and it's working perfectly.

    I checked this out this morning online and hesitated... checked again later and they were sold out.

    Decided i'd run over to the local BB on my lunch break and to my surprise they had 2 left just sitting their ready for me :p

    Just in case anyone was wondering... they have the crossfire interconnect bridge. It didn't list it as an item in box.

    If you convert that price to euros, will be even greater :p i got mine for 94euros whit shipping cost´s included. Atleast in portugal they still cost arround 150-200euros, so was a heck of a deal.

    You got a hell of a deal , I think i did also 2 -3870 for $260 cant beat it for the price

    Looking at all the benches This 3870 in crossfire keeps up with the 9800gtx in sli set ups . Most games they are just 10 to 20 fps deferent and for 1/4 the price :p

    I,m always a year or 2 behind the next best thing so this new build should hold me over for a while
