"AMD called us to announce new prices for the Radeon HD 3850 512 MB and HD 3870. In the USA tonight (and everywhere else soon after), e-tailer prices for the HD 3870 should drop from $245 to $189; The price of the HD 3850 512 MB should drop from $199 to $169.

Could this mean that something new is coming in the graphics world? Stay tuned."

If this is true I'll be picking up a second 3870 for crossfire looooong before I planned on doing so!

Good question. With my luck I'll buy another 3870 for a crossfire setup, then 1 or 2 weeks later something huge will come out. lol

I think the reason for dropping their prices is because Nvidia is launching a 9600GT very soon.

Your card is as good as those cards, but if you really want to make that card of yours the best it can be...they finally made an awesome cooler for it.

IMO it is a must for 8800GT owners.

Sad thing is they should have that cooler from the get go.

You got that right, very decent chip but they cranked the clocks and ditched the dual slot cooler. This new cooler will make the GT a powerful card, which won't overheat and die in a month....lol.
