Default 4870 for $165...

wow, this is very, very tempting...

SAPPHIRE 100259L Radeon HD 4870 512MB

enter this promo code (VGA1915) to get it shipped for $164.99 instead of $179.99, I've heard that it's not a reference design 4870 so there are issues with water cooling, but that has absolutely no affect on me...

Great deal, wish I was in the US, that's cheaper than an HD 4850 over here.

I like Powercolor's too.

Why is this so cheap?

Sapphire is a great brand no? Usually the most expensive

it's $194.99 w/free shipping...

-$15 MIR...
-$15 w/promo code (VGA1915)...

so $179.99 shipped, with a $15 MIR, $164.99 after MIR...
