In stock...called them up to verify the price and if it was in stock and they said yes. At $799.00......im going to wait till monday to pay less. Had it been just $100 less....i would have driven there on my lunch to pick it up. Im almost temped to drive there at lunch to check out the specs on the box. They said the specs will be posted in the afternoon.

XFX 512 7800GTX (http://www.mwave.com/mwave/viewspec.hmx?scriteria=3000415)

Well, I think if nV finds out that they are selling early, then they will nerf it. NDA doesn't break until Monday!

My thoughts exactly. I mentioned to her that they werent suppose to sell them until monday. Im gonna call back and find out the Core/mem speed before its to late.

I tried to order a 7800GTX from them early since they said they had it in stock early at the time but the order got cancelled. I never called to verify though. Just saw it listed as in stock on the website.

Anyway, glad to see the specs confirmed. I hope there are enough to go around for everyone that wants them. :)

Glad to see I was wrong about the XFX BIOS then.

To bad about the price though. God I hope evga doesn't charge that much for it. I might have to wait a while before I tradeup then. :(

I don't think eVGA will do that. I think they'll sell it for the suggested retail price but I could be wrong.

That's what I'm hoping for dude. And I'm also kinda hoping that on Monday it'll be up on their site, I can do the tradeup, and ship out my current card nxt day air that day. So I can hopefully get something by next weekend. :)

I know that might be pushing it but at least it gives me something to look forward to next week. lol

OK how do we know this is for real? How do we know the clocks are 550/1800? Did someone from here actually go over there and look at a box?

Well, he called them and she read the box off...

OK.. It's probably legit then however I hear the people at mwave aren't the brightest bulbs so I'm still not 100% sure I believe it. 99% though. :D

Some people don't believe. Check this guy from [H]:

both, he is a liar, and the guy at mwave cant read. XFX isnt even saying they are so much as considering a card with 512mb ram. besides that no picture, no listed specs on the site, nothing to say they have one. That, and the fact that the 512mb version of the 7800 hasnt been in a press release by nvidia either, suggests that they are both liars.

Someone haul some ass to Mwave and have a looksy at the box. If we're talking 1800 mem, that's a BIG DICK. W00t we're talking some serious ATi smackdownage :):):):)

What if he said are the core/mem specs 550/1800 and she replied .. yeh .. pro'lly...:p :D and he got all excited...
I bet she didnt read anythin on the box.. :D lol

BTW, jak, they must have arrived at the place you work. You could confirm it.

lol.....what a fool. I actually was transferred to Tech Support so that one of the guys could run to the back of the warehouse and get me the info. Unless he failed math and english and could not read english and numbers......then i stand to be corrected.

Im actually talking with them in trying to get a discounted card since i do lots of business with them. If i can get the card for $100 less.....ill post pics tonight.

hahaha

So I guess a leaked XFX BIOS, pics of the card, and the specs off the box are enough to claim that uber is a "liar"

Hey, he could call Mwave himself.

I wish I had a camera or I would go over there and take pics, but my camera is at home :(

Yeah I know that Raphael guy is an idiot. I was skeptical at first but after seeing this listing AND two people calling up there even I have to admit I was wrong.

Damn and I thought I was stubborn. This guy makes me look good. lol

He didn't sign an NDA. Why would it apply to him? If nvnews has signed some sort of NDA then he could just post them on a different website.
