Question about the newegg special savings. If it says it ends 12/30. Does that mean the sale ends today (reaches midnight), or ends by the end of tomorrow?

Idk where you guys get your benchies but I usually go here in a pinch when I need it quick. You can see the 6870 eeks out the 5870. There's not much price difference last I checked on the Egg.

Already purchased :/
Though, I imagine with some OC ill bet that gigabyte will keep up with a 6870.
Overnight shipping ftw.

In games the 6870 is not as powerful as the 5870, which is why the 6870 is cheaper than the 5870. Also, the 68xx is now considered the midrange instead of high end if I remember correctly.

Also, I suggest you get an better PSU whenever you can sniper, I wouldn't trust an rosewell with an 5870.
