I wanted to buy their Garmin 755T but adding tax might take it off will see hopefully it will go on sale in futureshop or bestbuy. Newegg also needs to sell WC gear.

For an article which is going to be posted tonight, the pricing for the HD4870 is just north of $250 while the 1GB model is looking at a shade above $360.

I had my eyes on this 305$ little thing since saturday. It has a cooler similar to the 7900GTXs which is also quite nice compared to the loud reference one. It's priced at exactly 240$ US + exchange rates so I think it's worth it.

Is this the toxic edition 4870? cant seem to see the pipe clearly enough to know
I was gonna switch to Green's 9800gtx+ but now that the price cut on ati , guess i be using reds again .

People on the net said that the sapphire toxic runs extremely cool and sapphire have good overclockable gpus.

It looks like a revamped 4870 Toxic yeah. The fan is more centered and the 3 heatpipes are chromed.
