    That is a hell of a price for a 295. If I could sell my other 3870x2 I'd be all over this.

    Coupon also works on other accessories...

    I just tried it with some Core 2 Extreme Quads and it worked.

    It says coupon expires March 31. Could you buy it now with the coupon and it ships when they have it in stock?

    I think that's how it would work. It doesn't matter when the order is shipped, as long as the coupon is used while placing your order before it is expired.

    Comes out to about $394 with tax. Which is better the 4870x2 or gtx 295 for Crysis and future games@1920x1200?

    For Crysis, the GTX 295 is better. Crysis is optimized to work better on nVidia chipsets. IMHO the GTX 295 is a better choice, but they are generally similar in performance for most games...

    Pretty sweet deal at $380 for me in NY. I ordered one on 3/24, it shipped on 4/6, I have a tracking number and it should be here later today (4/8) :rockout:

    btw, if anyone is aware of any new coupon codes for 25% or 30% off accessories like the ones above, please let me know. Dell has a KVM switch I'm interested in :p

    Sorry to say, but the deal is dead :(

    The irony is that I posted the deal and missed out on it too :nutkick:

    My video card shipping from Illinois. It was packaged in what I can only describe as a semi-rigid brown padded bag. It was torn a bit on one corner but fortunately the contents appear to be unharmed, however I would have liked to have seen a $400 video card packaged better than that :shadedshu
