thats the first ive heard of the defective ram problems, and right now the only gtx still on new egg is the asus. But now that i am looking at some of the reviews, i see some of the recent reviews mention the bad memory. This could explain the long wait for the restock, maybe evga started to use bad memory chips.... hmmmmm*ponders*
. i still suggest them for the price preformance, and mayber evga will start using better memory chips when they start shipping again. But if you can't wait, a 7900gt (evga if you want the step up program) will be a pretty good card too.
