Not a bad price. Should be cheaper. No dx10.1 support means the card will perform badly now and forever. ATI is a much better buy atm. By all estimates when dx10.1 releases the 3870 models will pass the GTs pretty easy and will get updates for years to come.
Please stop the baggery. You sound like a broken record. Yes, yes we are all aware of dx10.1, but in reality the geforce 8 (and 9) series are not exactly going to be left in the dust when dx10.1 is released. It will be a looooong time before 10.1 is the minimum requirement, and games for quite some time to come will still have dx10 and dx9 render paths (adoption of vista and dx10 is crawling).
Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE ATi fan, but unless there are some significant changes soon, I will be putting an 8800GT into my new build.
I can't believe I just fed a troll.
