it sucks for us in the UK, I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a month longer than widespread USA availability and still costs ****loads more.

I think one of the first places to get it will be the likes of http://www.overclockers.co.uk/ (but beware crap customer support) and not dabs or ebuyer (I prefer)

I have noticed the same thing. Sweden almost get things as fast as the US whereas UK buyers have to wait a fair bit longer. I don´t know if it´s because swedish resellers import directly from US or something...

Well the CEO of Nvidia just said during their CC that NV40s were not yet in mass production so....... I doubt you will see normal supplies before June.

I doubt you will see normal supplies before June.

And we shouldn't forget that those early supplies will likely be priced above MSRP at a lot of online retailers. If you want to be one of the first on your block to own one, you might be best served to find a big box retailer and get it from there.

Yeah, i know, but my wife is pregnant, I just got a big cheque and that money will have found other uses in a month! ;-)

If i dont get somthing now, it'll all go on baby stuff, (which aint a bad thing, but daddy gotta have his games too!) hehe!

When my wife went into labour at 8am I played SOF2 online until 7pm until she said we had to go to the hospital, I took her and we just got there in time !

After the birth she went to sleep and I went home and started playing again.

Nowadays I get hardly any time to play, so it seems. My daughter at this moment is sleeping but when she wakes up I will have to dash. I am at home on holiday but she has chicken pox !

So make the most of it, while you can.

Regards

Andy
