You got it at the $119? Holy crap Nice! That link now shows $325! I wonder if they screwed up and had to honor the lower price while it was up?

Nice find Tyr!

Some guy from those eVGA forums said he called tiger direct and amazon and said it was a good deal. 1000 units or something and they may do it again. So refresh, refresh lol

Now, until this is sitting on my porch, it's no guarentee, so if anyone sees it at $119, buyer beware.

Looks like you're getting a 680i for that price... :(

Yea it's looking that way. the old bait and switch.

So to cancel or go through with it?

Only a $125 but the thing is I dont like to be double crossed. If I'm scammed and they dont rectify it with prepaid shipping back i'll get pissed..It becomes a principle issue.

exactly, i'll contact my CC company and make a fraud claim and try for a chargeback. Free Mobo maybe, not sure how that works? I have screen shots and couple conformations that I'm indeed getting the 260, part number and all. Nothing even remotetly says a 680i mb in any of my sale conformations.

If it is a mistake, they need to get on this quick and cancel these orders or just bite the bullet and send the orders.

If they ship the MB, they're gonna get in to some trouble imo.

In all honesty, this is my first purchase from Amazon and all I really know from them is that they do have insane deals like this sometimes. So I jumped on it.

I don't know how your country does things, as I'm not in the USA. Some other users might know though. Fellas?

I'll only be pissed if they send the MB. If they cancel my order due to their mistake, it won't be that much of an issue. I'll just not have the $125 in my checking account, no biggie. But people are saying that this went on for 8 hours, even the picture switched from the 260 to the 680i board very beifly so someone at TD was aware. People got photos so maybe the threat of fraud due to bait and switch will make them eat this and give people their 260. Bait & Switch is a no no. (lee)

The issue though was people were buy 3-5 260 units. So even if they limit it to one I'm sure most people won't complain. It would probably reduce their orded by 2/3's
