Had to go with the egg heads since the lady at zzf said it wouldn't ship same day. The big red "no refunds" text was a little scary too. Not that I'd ever return it...pry it from my cold, dead, lifeless, glued to keyboard hands... I don't usually order from them. Anyone ever have zzf ship same day?

nope never... usually 3-4 days for them to ship anything! my BFG 7800GTX sat in "packed" state for 4 days.. my X2 4200+ was in packed state for 4 days also.

edit..

for what its worth I have 2 of those Leadtek 7800GTX in SLI in one of my systems..one card died completely after 3 days of use.. <shrug> YMMV

its on its way back to newegg for a replacement as we speak.

They've always shipped same/next day for me.
But I've never ordered such a popular item as this.

yeppers warrenty and durability is a big thing with a near $500 card.

myself i am going to wait a while before i get a GTX.

#1 is the price is bound to drop quite a bit more.

#2 as with anything that is new--there are bound to be some problems and some shoddy products. i so giving some time to sort it out would be the thing.


i jumped the gun on a PNY-6800GT--thought i got a good deal--it ran just long enough to let the one year warrenty go out--then croaked--and PNY's warrenty and service sucks--don't want to re-live that with a F-ing $500 video card !!

the BFG looks like the best--but i'll wait and see-- :cool:

Considering the nightmare you went through...BFG is the only choice ;) Good luck this time bro.
