Canceled my 349$ bestbuy order since they put in on backorder and called frys and they had a bunch in stock so i drove 30 mins to get one. My system specs are.
AMD XP2500+
FIC AU13Chameleon ultra
1042 total ram
512Kingston pc2700
2x 256 other brands
BFG Geforce6800 GTOC

So far i got 10300 on 3dmark 2003 which is damn good from my old score of like 1400.
Got 47,496 on Aquamark.
15,634 on 2001 SE.

Cool, I just called the San Diego Fry's, which let me know 20 were in stock in Texas lol. They wondered why they don't have any yet.

My brother picked up his BFG 6800 GT from Fry's in Fountain Valley, CA. Didn't find it on a shelf, but oddly found it on a box near the video cards section. Only one I saw there, but they had it for $399.

Sounds like somebody took it off its normal shelf and hid it for later.

Haha well so much for that idea.

What really frosts my fritter is that I had a BFG 6800 GT on pre-order for two weeks and then I cancelled it just yesterday. Today my brother, who I might add was not looking for a video card at all, finds this on a box and goes and buys it on the spot. I on the other hand have the card on 2-day order and get to watch him play the card I waited so long to get.

Here's the kicker: he paid $399 flat (no tax for military personell via my father) and I paid $425 + 15 for shipping. Eh, well at least I have my FedEx tracking number rather than Best Buy's "back order" status...

I ordered from Frys/Outpost, I waited till the following Monday after the BFG rep over on Hard OCP said they had shipped out there big orders on friday.

Come monday I placed my order, $12 overnight shipping and got hit with tax cause im in Cali, $444 shipped and I had it in my hands by noon the next day. Oh and that was monday the 28th of June so I've had the card for a week now.

Best Buy is really pissing off a lot of peeps over there crappy ordering system, I think less than 1/10th of the people that pre ordered actually have there cards. Best guess is there trying to fly in under the radar on the Comp USA 30% off deal that was posted so they aren't forced to price match it.
