Currently you can buy at least three different HD 7870 cards on Newegg.com with a price set at US $359.99 and a couple of HD 7850 cards with a price tag set at US $259.99. The cards have also stared to appear in Europe as well and it is possible to find the HD 7870 for as low as €304,96, while the HD 7850 is listed at €225,79.
