XFX seems to have two versions of this card. The "XXX Edition" is the overclocked (580/1.73) that most vendors seem to be selling. They also have the regular (550/1.7) version, so pay attention to the fine print before you pull your triggers. More info here (http://www.xfxforce.com/web/product/listConfigurations.jspa?seriesId=12035&productId=85744#PV-T70F-YDL).

Make sure you're checking these e-tailers Reseller Ratings (http://www.resellerratings.com/) before making any moves as well.

Yeah, everyone is selling out pretty quickly so if you find them in stock, better not think about it, just click that order button. :)

A work-in-progress guide, add to it if you have more information. I'll be updating this throughout the day.

BFG 7800 GTX 512 OC (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1648191&CatId=1826) at Tiger Direct: $699.99, ETA 7-21 days

eVGA 7800 GTX 512 (http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=M&Product_Code=190348) at Monarch Computer: $699.00, ETA 11/30
BFG 7800 GTX 512 OC (http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=M&Product_Code=190492) at Monarch Computer: $699.00, ETA 4-6 days
XFX 7800 GTX 512 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150119) at Newegg: $699.00, In Stock

No SKUs seem to be in for Newegg or Mwave at the moment. I figure this'll change by the end of the day.

~New egg has the bfg and xfx brand and evga is sold out. Shoot the egg is gouging 749.00!

Yeah, I'm sitting at the submit button now trying to decide what to do since I don't know the status of my other order. $699 didn't bother me much but someone selling them for $100 over retail, does.

You have to go to the video card section, choose 7800GTX as the GPU and 512M as the memory size. If you tried just searching the site for 7800 + 512 or something like that, it won't turn up anything (or it didn't for me anyway).

Price is $749 each currently (at Newegg).

I was about to pull trigger but I really won't be able to afford it for another month,actually being broke right now may be a blessing!:D

It's the 53.00 tax and the shipping that i never take into account and with everything said and done OUCH!!!

Also just noticed the XFX has jumped in price at Newegg to $749. Last Thursday when they put it up by mistake the price was $699.

The XFX price was actually $699 about thirty minutes ago. That's quite a gouge.

Did your Monarch order go through? Also, at least you'll have some new 64-bit drivers to try it with if so. The 81.94s are apparently out for XP-64.

Riptide
11-14-05, 11:17 AM
Wah? I can't find a link for 81.94 for XP64... Someone wanna link me? :D

I placed my order through Newegg last Thursday and the card shipped out the next day.

Didn't order through monarch..

Oops, sorry. The release notes and stuff are there but the download isn't ready yet. It appears the same way for XP-32. The page is up but the download link doesn't work yet.

My order with Tiger Direct is on back order so I cancelled it. He said they had pending orders already when the shipment arrived and they sold out immediately. He didn't have an ETA for the next shipment.

Vendor gouging. Expect prices to fall in 1-2 weeks, probably sooner.

Those r some HIGH prices for a dang videocard.

These prices will fall big time around christmas and after.

I hope it drives down the 256meg GTX and GT soon.
I'm about to buy. ;)

Nice performance though. Nvidia is really kicking ati around
these days. "lol" :angel:
