I just got done talking to a BESTBUY SALES REP they said there are no 6800 GT's in the warehouse to ship out! They said they have not heard anything from BFG on when and why they havent gotten the GT's yet!

confirmed. I just called and they said the same thing. The system still shows a 7/6 shipping date for my order but he didn't think it would be met because there were none showing up in house and he had no date as to when they would arrive.

This sucks. :(

Looks like I'm going shopping elsewhere this week. Unless I hear something different tomorrow.

What I find to be most ironic about the whole Best Buy GT fiasco is that the BFG guy said that the 6800 GTs had begun shipping to Best Buy BEFORE the Ultras did yet my Ultra shipped out on Friday and the GTs are nowhere to be seen...

I know I thought the GT's shipped before the ultras! I did call BFG to see if they ever did send the gts out to BB and the guy I talked to said he doesnt know the answer to that and that I would have to talk to a SUP to find that out and he said a SUP wont be in till tommarow! :screwy:

I learned my lesson dealing with BB Online back when they mispriced Visiontek TI4600's, and they cancelled 1000's of orders. BB Online is not worthy of my business. Best of luck to you guys who've ordered from them, I hope you get your stuff soon.

I got my X800 Pro online through them very early on but maybe I was the exception and not the rule.

You're a complete dope if you thought for one second BB was going to let you get away with a $400 video card for the mis-priced $129. And BB was perfectly within its right to cancel those orders.

I agree, you will have to pay a realistic price. Best buy probabily has the cards , but are holding out till they put out the correct price. These cards are worth $400.00. I paid $418.00 shipped next day from evga and am very satified :)

I called BB and got the automated order checking thing and entered my number, according to it my card for 299usd will be ready for shipping or pick up tomorrow. We will see.

If not Evga here I come.

Oh, my secret is to buy other items to pacify my main craving, should be getting another stick of HyperX tomorrow and if this deal seems to be much more delayed other goodies will probably be bought to the dismay of my wife.

I’m not in a big hurry but I don’t like being lied too.
I believe Scott Herkelman BFG VP of marketing lied too the people who read HardForums.

We really only have one recourse if we don’t like a company’s behavior: Don’t buy their products.

I have principles but, the sad thing is, they can be compromised by $$$. I will keep my $299 pre-order a week longer.

Next round I will avoid BFG (unless they are $100 less then their competitors again)
