I'm sure this is a screwup, but I'm almost tempted to order just to read the cancellation email :udawg:

Too bad I don't live in USA and I don't have my own money (only 16) otherwise I would order it. Someone order it and tell us how it goes. :drooling:

NewEgg has same card for $539 dollars. This HAS to be messup. Still, its mighty tempting just to try an order.

Maybe guy who does their website updates was (drunk) Or.... Maybe Asus is having some really big price cuts :rofl

Ahh screw it. Im to lazy plus im sure it's a typo and the moment they discovered their mistake they would raise the price up to $600.

Funny thing, I know a bunch of people in IRC who already ordered it just to see what will happen :) They are pretty sure they will be reading cancellation emails, but of course they hope a few get shipped before someone notices :)

For giggles I ordered one- they are 45 minutes from my house. They have the same address as A2Zcomputers.com which I have been to before. Based on my expreiences with them my guess is that they will ship it out without knowing anything. They are not the most organized company. I could be wrong though.

Ordered one, too. If I get it I'm going to sell it and my 6800 NU and buy an ATI X800, and just screw nVidia and their ****ty video processor.... :)

The company gets mostly bad reviews on reseller ratings and bizrate:

I took two. The second will pay for the one i Keep.

PS Asus makes two models of ultra. This one is the reference board, the blue one is an assus design.

Hrm. I hope we don't have to get ugly on them. I don't know what kind of legal repercussions we have, but I am sure MikeC would know.

Do we have anything to fall back on if they screw us Mike?


I'm not sure but I am thinking about the deal awhile back with the ATI X800 XT PE I ordered from Dell ( I think it was). I saw it in the forums and ordered it along with 10,000 other people. I never got it and I don't think they ever sent email I had to call them. They said something like they aren't in stock and they weren't expecting them. I don't think we will be getting these cards but you never know.

u guys think i should head on down there with my receipt and see if i can get a card? they are about 30 minutes from my house.

Sucka

There's nothing to lose here, you get a Ultra card for an insane price, or you get a refund with an e-mail. 99.9% sure no one will recieve a card, but we all knew that when we ordered :POKE:

Make sure you order on a credit card, if you go for it. ATM/Debit cards with MC/VISA logo do NOT have the same legal consumer protections of a real credit card.

I learned that the hard way. :) I did get my money returned to my checking account but it took a while.
