I went ahead and pre-ordered this card at Gameve for $390 + 8.00 Fedex Saver (no TX sales tax levied). I had reconciled myself to having to wait for at least several weeks for this card, and decided to pre-order with the merchant with the lowest price.

Anyways, whilst sitting here basking in the joy of my pre-order, I decided to give them a call...just for grins...to see if they had any clues regarding ship dates/availability.

Well...the CSR I spoke with said give them a couple of hours, it will probably ship today, as they are expecting a large shipment to pull into their docks shortly.

She may have been yanking my yam...I'll write more in a couple of hours.

Take everything GameVE says with a grain of salt. They aren't the most trustworthy place when it comes to ship dates.

Oh well...I had already reconciled myself to a wait. A CSR tells me ETA is 7-6-04 (yeah, right). One fact remains: I'm "locked in" at the $390 price tag (it was $480 when I just looked).

Wow, $480, that is an insane price. I'm glad I got it at $398, and I'm getting it Friday (already shipped). I'm glad I ordered on Monday. :ORDER:

I'm getting mine for $415 including overnight shipping from Compuplus. That's really not bad because I'm paying less than I would have with Best Buy. The card should get here tomorrow.

I ordered mine from GameVE, and it went through the same order status path.

I sent them an e-mail asking about the change of status to "backordered", and the reply was basically "huh? it's already shipped".

So a couple of hours later I get the fedex number in an e-mail, and the status went through two more changes before landing on "order shipped".

My guess is that their purchasing, inventory, and shipping systems are not interfaced (or at least not interfaced well).

I hope yours is in the same "un-backordered" state mine was, and you get it tomorrow! :)
