    *NOTE* these cards can be run using the 6pin PCI-X power connector from your PSU

    linky?

    i hope not it would be really to nice to get 1 so i could switch to vista and DX10 when the drivers mature.

    i just use my comp for basic stuff so a GFX upgrade would be just perfect for me

    I did some googling and hit up the more reputable US online stores....no one seems to have it here yet. Maybe get on live chat with the Egg or shoot NCIX an email and see if they even have plans to buy them yet!

    They're not even available in the UK yet, however I did do search for some shops selling them and some importers said they'd be able to get a Sapphire 3850 in 2 to 3 weeks. I'd hold out, as they may release a 3870 once the 3850 have started selling.

    Well, I'm going on my own gut feeling. SOD's law has it, that if I buy a 3850 they'll release an even better 3850 or they'll release a 3870. I haven't read anywhere that they will be, but I can't help but think that's what will happen.
