There was a 5870 for less than $200 earlier but I forgot to post it.

Here's a decent deal:

$280 for a GTX 570 (regularly $365)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127552
(After $20 MIR)

It's a powerful as heck video cad, and not a bad value at all! Deal only lasts 24 hours I think (15% discount).

AMAZING DEAL!!! 24 hours only.
XFX HD 4850 1GB --- for UNDER $50


If you don't have a better card, buy this NOW! Or if you can do crossfire, buy 2!


$46.99
With Promo Code: EMCYTZT366
After $30 MIR with Free Shipping

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150482&nm_mc=EMC-GD03232011&cm_mmc=EMC-GD03232011-_-index-_-Item-_-14-150-482

Much of the savings is a $30 MIR, and sometimes MIRs can be fickle, but if it comes through, killer savings.
This card is better than a 8800gt... while not DX11 compatible, it is still a great card and will play most games on high settings (probably not the newest, demanding games though).

OMG! I want 2!
I'm considering rebuilding my pc from ground up, any great mobo deals anywhere?
Does it come with international shipping?

(also looks are the secondary thing for me, i want good playability with high fps so i dont really care if its on med, low or high.. As long as it can run bf3 on low with 50+fps im fine)

muck I JUST REALISED THAT IM BROKE ATM AND PAYDAY IS ON THE 5TH

5870 only $170 after MIR... this is crazy. It's less than some 6850s yet more powerful. Some say it runs very hot and that the 5700 series suffers from micro stutters and such, but this is still a very good deal.

A nice starter package for a DIY gamer base. The onboard video is good enough to play games on low settings (I have the same chipset in one of my builds and I play borderlands on it!). All you'd have to do is upgrade to a sweet graphics card when you have the money and you've got a helluva gamer. (I'd recommend the 6950, but the I've seen the 5870 for al little as $160!!!)

I just bought 4 gig's of ram.  I bought the following for $61.99.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166

I finagled them out of a $10 gift card because something I bought from them went down in price after three weeks.  I wanted the cash, knowing full well they would offer a gift card which I would gladly accept of course...hehehe.  Plus, I used one of their email list 10% coupons ($8.00 for me) on all desktop memory.

After a couple of months of waiting and planning and even scheming, I got the price down to what I was willing to pay for some pretty decent ddr2.

It's sick how expensive ddr2 is now. =P
