Default is this a good deal for a HIS Radeon HD 3870 ICEQ3 775MHZ 512MB 256BIT GDDR4

they have it on a NCIX for $214 CAD? http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...S&promoid=1055

Its not bad but I would check out the overclocked 9600's they are very similar in price but perform a wee bit better. ATI is uses less power and the HIS has a nice cooler on it though. So there are pluses and minuses but if you do have the extra money the 8800 gt blows both of those cards out of the water.

Yeah anywhere between $200-220 is a good price. This is one of the better 3870 as well, mine runs at 910 core with stock cooler np.

12500+ at stock with a quad, 14500+ OC'd. (I know it's not a dual core, but I doubt it would make that much difference.... :) ).

thanks sswilson, was curious about the score between the ICEQ 3870 and my BFG 8800GT OC .
since my mobo can do crossfire, thinking of going that way.
The price's are good right now.
