CompUSA has it on sale for $369.99

I dig that super cooler they are throwing on the new GTS. Not sure if it's worth the price though.

I'm still waiting on my GT to show up from Dell. They pushed the ship date to 12-17-07 now.

Aye, these are down in the $350 range or lower from some places, and likewise in the 160-180 GBP range over in the u.K. Which is oustanding, since some of the GTs cost that much.

I'd say wait a few weeks and get them for a tiny bit cheaper, but knowing what happened to the GT stock, I wouldn't dilly-dally. This is the new price/performance king.
