Quick urgent Q... Found a 9800GX2 for "cheap"
 
I found a XFX 9800GX2 locally for 180$, good deal? something to check out for?

It's a pretty good deal I guess. Other stores such as NCIX sold the 9800GX2 at around that price as well before.

Edit: Might've mistaken $280 for $180 during one of NCIX's weekly sales....sorry. But check my other post.

That cheap? They retail for 350-380 right now.

Oh well... still a good upgrade from my 3870 that is going into a friends computer most likely.

yes its very good deal... one here sell the used one for 250ish... i bought it for 289cdn from ncix on the sale...

i recommend you to upgrade it from your old hd3870.... as long as its condition is good.

Sounds like a good deal to me.

Yea, it was a good deal. However, we haven't seen that kind of prices since then, so just get it. However, make sure that it's retail and not open box and stuff.

Sounds like fitting a 4870X2 into my TTShark. :rofl: That's a tight fit.
