HD3870 X2 available at ?250
Plain HD3870 sells for €100
ATI's dual-headed HD3870 X2 prices are dropping, and at €250 it's starting to look like a great deal, especially considering the pricing of upcoming 48xx series cards.
The cheapest HD 3870 X2 is currently listed at €229, but it's unavailable at this price. Most retailers are selling the HD3870 X2 at just over €250, but we're expecting the price to drop very soon, following the HD48xx series launch.
You can get a plain HD3870 for €102 or an 8800GT for just €109, and if this is still too much for you, you can go for an HD3850 or 8800GS for just €70.
These are truly ridiculous prices and they will drop even further following the GTX 2xx/HD48xx series launch and the looming price war. Just try to remember what a hundred euro would have gotten you 12 to 18 months ago.
