had a friend preorder mine, so all the emails goes to his address and not mine, but here's what he's sent me over thepast few days for the card he ordered me....

I ordered a BFG Geforce 6800 Ultra OC 256MB card....

the orginal release date was 6/28

it was then pushed to 7/06

then it was pulled forward to 7/02

then he recieved an either that same day or the next stating that the item was on backorder, but would ship to him on 7/04

now, assuming thats true, 7/04 was a holiday, as well as yesterday, monday, so wouldnt they ship them today?

or has anyone else heard if they were being delayed again? has anyone received their card from bestbuy yet?

i am talking about the BFG 6800 Ultras, not the GT's....

"This product should ship to you within the next 25 days."

next 25 days, thats what the support at best buy said today when i called em and they basically told me my order was still on backorder...... ALTHOUGH the other day when i called (sunday and monday) it said the order was being checked for shipping and delivery address and was off backorder..... but now its on back order again?

i am about to dial 1-888-Best-buy and scream very loudly

That was an e-mail to me from when I sent THEM an e-mail about my order. Though, last Friday that moron at Best Buy told me it was shipping FRIDAY. LOL, what a joke this has been.

u think theres any possibility it will end up shipping today? maybe a misunderstanding like how the GT's are shipping now even though they were not even supposed to be in stock?

whoops :o I ordered a GT on the 14th or 15th whenever the $300 deal was posted. It just changed this morning.

But I swear I saw someone talking about their ultra having the same message since friday.

It doesn't look like anyone is going to have the Ultra in stock from any company for 2 weeks.

thats the problem, alot of people had the same message as "shipping" on friday for the ultra, and yesterday it switched back to "backorder"
