john malley from bfg said over on the [H] forum today that the 2nd shipment hit bfg on the 12th and was shipped out to best buy and the 3rd hits bfg on monday and will be shipped out to best buy then. all the pre orders should be out and in users hands he says by end of next week.
now on the best buy end i found out that on their internal web browser product lookup thing they show an in store shelf date of april 1. same date the the 9800 will be in stock at the stores aparently.
people have cancelled pre orders tho so im assuming theyll be willing to sell the pre order cards that were cancelled in store so you probobly wanna check w/ your local best buys inventory manager.
but if i were you personally, id just hit up newegg since they got em right now.
