Yeah. No nibbles even.

I'll keep it up for another 72 hours and then it's going in my primary gaming system.

Price Drop on the HD 5870 Matrix.

Last chance to get it before it goes into my gaming system!

Probably because no one needs the extra 2GB and the price increase that comes with it. Just guessing. There's GOTTA be someone that needs a few extra inches of e-peen, though. Gotta be.

Good point. Just lowered the price to ~ that of a reference HD 5870 which includes shipping.

This definitely should be tempting to someone now! Even though 2GB may be inconsequential for the majority of games at this time, we've seen in the past how new games with large textures can eat up memory, especially at higher resolutions. Case in point: Metro 2033 maxed out @ 2560 x 1600 as seen right in the review.

Also, people should remember this model comes with Eyefinity support!

Do you sell on RFD, Sky?

Please someone buy this unit already! OC's easily past 1ghz / 5ghz ram, and quiet to boot. Big fan, rear exhaust & pretty lights too.
The temptation is killing me but this month's budget is shot already.
