    hehe, now it's cheap, about $80 in secondary market.

    But you'd better not buy mine, because the shipping freight is far more expensive than the expense of itself.

    :D

    Around 23,000.

    This is how much it cost to send a package the size and weight of that box from Beijing to my place:

    Notice the title in front of his name. It's obviously his monthly shippment of "suppliments" to assist with news writing and posting.

    Nah, not all things are bad. And Nehru Place isn't the "Akihabara of India" as they say. It's just a really big place for cheap computer parts.

    High-end parts are mostly on par with US prices. In fact I got my processor for less than Newegg.com price. The USD-INR equation balances out most of the time. It's just that non-reference ATI Radeon tends to be costly.

    Very respectable. Also can I take this moment to insert a cliche line about Indi doctors?

    OT: didn't he say he didn't update drivers, even if your drivers picked up the card, you need to update to the newest you can for the HD 5870. I think that may be why your 3dmark 06 score is so low. I score higher than that with my HD 5770, course my CPU is at 3.4ghz, but still.
