Looks like a better deal than the 470 listed here today. I'm seeing some feedback on TD that Diamond might not have good customer service. Do you own due diligence.

Here's the deal:

$309.99 - $37.2 (12% BCB, search for "tiger direct") - $30 MIR + free ship + no tax for CA = $242.79

My screen is 1920x1080 LCD TV so I don't think I really need anything faster than a 5850. Still I'd prefer a 5870 for under $300. I'm thinking I should wait till the Southern Islands cards are available later this year. Don't really game much right now anyway. My 8800GT work fine so far.


BTW, you can get a Visiontek 5850 for $20 more (no free shipping), but you don't need to do a MIR and you get a lifetime warranty (vs. 12m).

$289.99 - $34.8 (BCB) + 5.87 shipping = $261.06

I'd say the extra warranty would be nice, however video cards are the one component that I have never had fail on me.
