This is good news. Hopefully I'll be able to get a 4870 on a $600 budget at the end of the year lol

how much are they after rebate...? this has got to be the price to performance champ right now at this price, doesn't it...? it's over $200 on Newegg with shipping, but only has 5 reviews, all of which are at least 4 eggs, but $125 for this card after rebate...? I may have to snag one this weekend...

i guess Zotac is trying to get as many consumers as they can so they can get their name into a well known name.

zotac is a pretty good company, they deserve to be up there with EVGA and XFX.

They all stick to the reference designs. Why can't EVGA do something interesting, like Gainward?

it depends on what game, the resolution, etc., this is actually my great debate right now, 4850 or 8800GTS, a little better performance or price, if the 8800GTS was regularly priced there would be no debate, $125 for the performance that an 8800GTS can deliver...? I just can't see beating that right now, that is dirt cheap...
