Where as Radeon HD 3870 best price is £125.00

With possible price reductions coming.......

Since they trade blows in most games I'm surprised the 9600GT is as high as it is.

Comments please........oh, and no idea what the situation is like in the U.S. Haven't looked at newegg yet. Sure one of you guys will do it for me.

Newegg, the 9600GT is $180 and up depending on clock speeds and the cheapest HD3870's are $185 for a Sapphire or $180 AR ($10 rebate) for an Apollo. Oh, and the cheapest 8800GT 512MB is $200 no rebates.

Sure. AR (after rebate) means total price we pay after receiving a rebate check back in the mail. We pay the higher price and then have to mail in a form, copy of receipt, and the UPC symbol from the box to get the rebate back. It takes anywhere from 6-10 weeks, and occationally you need to follow up with a phone call to get it. So you have to make photo copies of everything just in case. All this hassle means that many people never go forth and submit the rebate, and that is why they(the manufacterer or store) do it. Many people don't mind mail in rebates like this. Others know they won't mail them in anyway so they ignore the rebate part of the price. Hope that helps.

edit: Here is an example. Our cost is $219.99 + the shipping, plus any tax if you live in the few unlucky states they charge tax in. Then after submitting the rebate form and requirered proofs of purchase, you later get a $20 check in th mail. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This one is $20 cheaper without a rebate hassle.

This definitely looks like a good card, I'd trade my 3850 512mb up for it if I didn't get overscan issues with Nvidia cards.

That 384MB 8800GS for $159.99 doesn't look bad either. The midrange GPU market is absolutely exploding right now, and that's a good thing if you ask me.

Don't expect the 8800GS to be around much longer. nVidia put that out as a stopgap prior to the release of the 9600GT.

Oh, and the 9600GT is ahead of the 8800GS.
