    http://www.legionhardware.com/document.php?id=704&p=7

    i check out www.shopbot.ca now and wow...prices are $180cdn+ for the 3850. The 3870 is $300 in some cases! Nvidia's 8800gt isn't the only one gouging the pc gaming market!

    Just got my two 3870's today. ZZF had them in stock yesterday. Funny right after I bought mine the price shot up to $280. I thought the egg was the only one who did that.

    Re: 3800 Pricing revealed... DAMN!

    Whoa, what's with the price of the 3870s now, suddenly $269US at newegg. That price totally changes the 3870 vs. 8800GT equation.

    alex, how do you like your GA-G33M-DS2R? It's mATX though i'm looking for full atx board. I am seriously considering integrated graphics for the time being until the prices drop, not to mention inventory availability for the GT.

    That's exactly why I got it, so I could pick a card when the time is truly ripe. As for the board, I love it. It got a lousy review at anandtech, they had trouble bumping the fsb past 400. Well, I got the fsb up to 500 right out of the box, literally, and am currently running 450 X 8 orthos and memtest stable with the e6750, temps are cool (upper 20s idle, mid-40s under load with the AC cooler in sig), vcore is 1.406 (I may have lucked out on this cpu, as I recently read a review on the e6750 re. oveclocking, and to get up to 450 X 8 they had to pump 1.56v into it, something outrageous like that). Plus, they put the x4 pci-e slot at the end opposite the x16 slot, so should I opt for a dual-slot video card, I won't lose that x4 slot. If I do make it a HTPC, I want that slot for a wireless card I have. The biggest knock on this board is that it's older technology, i.e., the on-board video is not as up-to-date as some boards, there's no hdmi output, and so forth. I bought the board fully intending to install a video card at some point, so all those criticisms were meaningless. But it's a P35 chipset basically, so in that sense it's still pretty current. For me, it has overclocked beautifully, and many of the newegg reviewers for this board reported the same, one of the reasons I bought it. The bios is probably not as fully loaded as some, but it does what I want. The price was a little high relative to other mATX board. In any case, I have been very very happy with this board.

    Yup, Id like to know what is driving the price up on the HD3870. Im hoping that the $219.00 price wasnt just a marketing ploy to steal the thunder from the 8800GTs launch. Because if these new prices are what we can expect for the ATI cards then the reason to buy a 3870 and not a 8800GT is more or less gone.

    Probably demand and the weak dollar driving up the price?

    AMD to lower Radeon HD 3800 series GPU pricing

    Monica Chen, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 30 November 2007]



    AMD has recently notified its partners of plans to drop the price of its Radeon HD 3850 and 3870 GPUs by around US$20, according to sources at graphics card makers.

    The original official Radeon HD 3850 (RV670 Pro) and 3870 (RV670 XT) prices were US$179 and US$219. After the reduction, the new prices will be set between US$159-179 and US$199-219, respectively.

    In response to AMD's plans, Nvidia also notified its partners that it will consider following up with price reductions of its own, causing several makers to delay mass orders to prevent themselves from absorbing the price damage, according to the sources.

    AMD and Nvidia were invited to comment on this report but had not responded by the time of publication.

    COMMENT: I'll believe it when i see it. My store sells the 3850 for $180, and $255+ cdn for the 3870. Plus, $20 off is nothing to be excited about, but for those looking for the 8800GT (selling for $270 to start, and higher in other places).

    I purchased my 3870 at 219.00 after the first few batches of 3870 sold out retailers for the most part (On line at least) pushed the price UP not down.
