I have 2 of these. $100 + 8 for shipping in the us.

they were running hot in crossfire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossfire and i switched out for my first 3870 which runs only slightly cooler... not going to bother going back to crossfire. Comes in original box w\ crossfire bridge.

$95 shipped! card will come in retail box w\ crossfire bridge.

pny = lol not to mention that the card you linked is an all around slower card. you could have at least posted another 3870 to compare it to.

95 is cheap. especially since i'm going to end up eating about $6 to ship the card and 3% to take payment w\ paypal.

the 3870 i'm using in my system i bought for $200 (180 and 20 to overnight it) and then i picked these up on ebay but went back to just a single card.

here are specs for the pny 8800gt you're saying is better then this card...
Stream Processors 112 vs 320
Core clock 600mhz vs 800
Memory Clock 1800MHz vs 2250
Memory Size 512MB
Memory Type GDDR3 vs gddr 4

if the pny was $80 i'd consider it to put in my optiplex 745 in my office sine its single slot.

I bought 2 of these cards on ebay about 2 months ago and put them in my new system in crossfire but ended up changing them out for my other 3870 i bought in march.

they were running pretty hot in crossfire.

Diamond - exactly as in this link.. the first link above looks like it may be broken now.

This is a 10 page review of the card... on the last page one of the cons it has is '' potential fan throttling issue " idk if its a driver thing or if its the card but I did have this problem w\ them... as they would be running pretty hot and the fan is just like... do de do de do... @ 20%.

i swapped these out during troubleshooting this and just left my first 3870 in because i don't really need 2 of them anyhow.

Somebody is supposed to buy one of these later today, so only 1 available now.

That is a great paper comparison but when it comes down to real world performance the 8800gt is still faster in most games even at stock clocks. Now the 4850 has great paper perf and real world perf vs the 8800gt ^^
