Default Why do no online stores carry an fx5900

I have found only a few online stores that carry a regular 5900. I want an albatron one, the FX5900EPV, but the only reputable stores who have it are zipzoomfly.com, and gameve.com well gameve doesn't have a very good rating at resellerratings.com
20% of the reviews are very dissatisfied ( then there are somewhat dissatisfied ones and then a neither good or bad, etc) that means that 1 in 5 people had a very bad experiance. zzf costs too much to justify the purchase ( $280 VS. $200 at gameve after a 25% discount) figures, newegg doesn't even have a regular 5900. why are there no regular 5900's out there, all stores have are the xt's and se's, the ones that are not as good. I guess i'll have to settle with a crappy XT 5900

Probably discontinued, try searching for a 9700 on Newegg, it's the same deal, all they have are $400 AIW cards.
