Russian that's funny the last time I looked on several sites the 3870x2s' <<ASUS>> Regular are selling for $450+...most are out of stock...
While the Asus tops' are rarely available and sell for slightly higher.
You can always find a small number sometimes only one for a really great price...often because it works and still has some flaw...which is only noticeable to either an overclocker/gamer/bencher.
I have bought cards before that worked just fine in all regards in stock speeds and yet were obsolute crap when oc'ing them...once rma'd and replaced with new ones' solves the issue.
Anyways, the 3870x2 Asus top is at the moment the best of the 3870x2s'....until the 4870x2 come out nothing can effect it's cost.
Also, even when the 4870x2 do come out everyone who owns the Asus top 3870x2 won't rush to buy until Asus comes out with the 4870x2 top version...the regular would be a serious downgrade~!!!
check out these monitors...after having this in your home office why would you want a two dvi 4870x2?
I'll be one of the ones waiting on the Asus 4870x2 Top.....nothing else ' may ' compare if Asus stays on board with same 4-dvi...if not hdmi outs and improved hynix memory as with the 3870x2topEdited by thunder_2008 - 6/19/08 at 12:23pm
