Lord AnthraX you are a very, very bad man! It's ok, NewEGG got in some of the Super Clocked versions of the card and I ordered it today. HOPEFULLY they still had some in stock. I didn't really want to throw down the extra money for something I could do for free with some tweaking, but at this point I just want to get one and get it over with =P

Yea, you can blame Nvidia for not making enough chips like they did with the 7800GTX 512 (but not nearly as bad). The only ones I would consider buying are: EVGA, Leadtek, XFX, BFG, and MSI.
True, nevertheless, it's not like it requires 1.1ns memory like the 7800GTX512's did ... they're just a little lazy on production or something.

And you just about named every brand lol.

I was relieved to see NewEgg added FedEX delivery back. I ordered my motherboard, ram and AMD X2 3800 and UPS set it on my front porch. Not a big deal right? Well, I live in an apartment complex with about 5000 people. 5000 honest people I guess hehe
