Seems like a super deal.
This is much faster than a FX5700 ULTRA.
Fast. Only 7 left at the moment.

Man, that is an excellent deal! Let's see someone find a Radeon 9800 for that price.

Excellent deal. Too bad I want a Radeon 9800 series card.

Good rating but not many reviews recently. 7.37/10 http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1216.html

I'm surprised they only sold one of those cards! I would almost even consider ordering one if I didn't already have an order in for another card.

I don't think the 5900 is that much faster than a 5700 Ultra. It's a better card for the money though. I saw a BFG 5900 at Best Buy today for $249 with a $50 rebate. At a final cost of $199, this is a great deal.

I would think with AA and AF enabled it would be a good deal faster than the 5700Ultra. The 5700Ultra still uses a 128 bit memory bus while the 5900 uses a 256 bit memory bus. Originally people including myself thought the 5700ultra would have a 256 bit bus, but oh well.

Ya Judging by the order process it seems to be going pretty good.

Below is a mini-bench done by www.pcpop.com.
The 5700 Ultra clocked at 475/900 while the 5900SE clocked at 400/700.
Resolution is at 1024x768 32bit color, no AA/AF.

From the chart, we can see that even a FX 5900 clocked at 400/700 is sufficient to beat a FX 5700 ultra by a hefty margin.

I'm picking up a 5900 non u next week too, I'll see how it handles a 9800nonpro ($240) @ 443/401 stable and stock.

I'm thinking it won't handle anything but I can sell it on ebay.
