Default Re: ATI announces HD 3800 price drops.

Oh Crap. Like 1 week after I buy an 8600GTS. I woulda so paid the extra $50 for the 3850. Maybe it will be reduced here in canada by tommorow, because I can still take this back within the 7 days.

I definitely would. If they aren't, you can always re-buy the card.

Maybe I should just take it back and play my xbox 360 for a week and see if the price has changed.

I called the place and just asked generally how long it takes to get the price drops here in canada and they said about 2 weeks. So I might be SOL

Their drivers at the moment...aren't the best. But that's the ATI way- the cards will get more and more powerful as they age =]

I was thinking about getting two...but I'm most likely getting two 9800 GX2s.
How much are they gonna be? I'll build a rig soon I might get one.

Make sure you can fit it- they're a good 13" long.
