I can't remember which, but NewEgg uses either FedEx or UPS. If either of those can't get you the item overnight...no one can.

Your best bet is to find a local shop/store and buy it. If that's not possible...well yer just gonna hafta wait.

I live in Rural, Pa and have things overnighted to me several times a week from differant vendors, I think its just because they are from Ca that they have a hard time.

So if a supplier is closer say Eastern or Central US shouldnt be a problem

Yeah, they have distribution warehouses in several places. Oh, and if you wait too long today, you ain't gonna get it tomorrow. Overnight shipping stops early, depending on the carrier, between 1 and 3pm. After that, it gets processed the next day, and goes out overnight the next day.

You'd also be burning out a 2-night shipment into a 3-nighter by waiting too long.

I ordered my Win XP Pro OEM from www.directon.com this morning the video card I will just pick up from Sams / Office Max tomorrow.

I have no idea why newegg cant overnight to my address, our Photolab in Arkansas overnights our pictures every day??

NO huge deal, I very seldom am in that big of a hurry to get something, it just happens to be tomorrow my pc parts are coming in, and its my day off, so want to put my system together tomorrow evening.
