I would think they won't sell out in a day, and I'd think that if they do, it won't be "till May! Maybe Christmas!" as some have alleged.
If availability is indeed limited, I don't see why the situation would be different from the 5870 or past gens where they sell out, you wait a few weeks, get another chance.
Or, could be that all the 40nm got ironed out with ATi and availability will be good, period.
Hard to say.
I will say this:if you really want one of these, I wouldn't hang around flipping coins and thinking about it when they do launch. Because if they start selling out quickly the etailers will surely do supply and demand pricing as they always do.
I hope those of you who want one, get one. Those of you who can't wait, enjoy the 5870s.
