I think he wants it for reviewing/comparison, as he is being fairly specific about what he wants.

I am reviewing a CF motherboard and one of my two 3870s died. So I either find a new 3870 or have to fork out a fortune for 2x4850 or similar (which I cant afford right now). :(

I have stuff to trade though, if anyone has 4850 and wants to talk a deal, PM me.

If only you were allowed to borrow these kinds of items eh :P. I bet someone is selling a couple 4850s, if they could lend you them for like a week for $20 that would make things easier for you.

That or if ATI could just toss you a couple for reviewing purposes lol.

I have a line on a loaner, I was just hoping for more a permanent option as I am reviewing constantly. I could buy one for $160 + ship at newegg but you would have to be nuts to pay that for an old gen card, I could get a 4850 for that price.

I guess another option is sell the 3870 and buy 2x4670 or something but those will run me $200 and the selling and shipping will take too long.

Hmmm... Another option could be to sell the 3870 for like $80-100 and then buy 2x 1950s for $80... Unless you need dx10

I definitely need DX10. I dont want to go pre-3000 series as that is what most will have that read my reviews. What sucks is 2-3 weeks ago there were a mountain of 3870 for sale dirt cheap and now when I need one there is jack shite.
