bad news, newegg just ran out of that card. I was planning on ordering tomorow, but now i don't know if i'll chose a different card, but from a different site, or wait on a new shipment. Im looking around and i can't find it anywhere else. If anyone else knows where i can find one of those it would be really helpful.

Zipzoomfly.com
Tigerdirect.com

Both excellent sites, comparable to newegg.

ok, i checked tiger and couldn't find it, plus im in NC and tiger charges me tax(grr) but i haven't heard of zipzoomfly.com. And whaddaya know they're backordered there too. Did the one i had picked out have 256 bit interface? i was pretty sure it did, but all the ones i see, and the manufacurers site say 128 bit.
