I hear ya. I just read a bunch of the threads at Rage 3d about that too.
I saw another thread that said they were also being offered by ATI themselves at their online store, so I did just order it from there. I figure if ATI themselves put it for sale on their site...they just HAVE to have it in stock hehe. But who knows, maybe that will burn me.
I paid for the Express shipping which is 20 bucks, but since theres no tax on it..it works out to be a little less than if i walked into a store and bought it...and this way i can stop calling shops here and pissing people off lol.Still not the sweet deal that you and others have from gamestop, but oh well. Just want the hardware.
