Well I broke down and bought a coupon code and an X1900XT. Came to about $375 shipped and taxed. So, it looks like I'll be selling my 7900GT soon.

^ Me too. $9 for coupon. I had SLI GT's on order I had to cancel for a deal. Thank god I didn't pay for that coupon. My order now is actually for a Crossfire second one. Something I'm confident will be delivered in reasonable time. People should be hopping on the ATi instead. :D Though I got to buy a board. :|

I only had one 25% coupon, all the other coupons on eBay at the time had really high shipping/extortion prices, like $12-$15. Didn't feel like buying from one of those jerks. I would have saved more like $15ish, didn't really care that much... so, yeah, I could have saved a bit more, but I'm pretty apathetic. :D

That did really bug me but the $10 I paid for the coupon saved me $150 so it was worth it in the end.

let us know how it goes.

this is what will probaly happen

since probaly ALOT of orders for this card went in in the last couple of days. Those who ordered in the later part of this sale, might have to consider cancelling due to unreasonable ship times.

yeah, they are probably sold out right now, so they have to order somemore. May 2 isnt bad for me, i wont have all my parts by then anyways. My 2005fpw monitor was shipped before its est. date. All depends on how fast they can get the cards.

May 2nd? Ouch.

I still can't get over how I received my X1900CF card 22 hours after I placed the order. And I got free ground shipping too. :p :D

May 2nd here as well. However, I do NOT think that's such a bad wait due to the price of the cards. I mean, it's only 2.5 weeks . . .

And it's a better card! Seriously folks, I don't get it. I cancelled GTs because of unreasonable ship times. Those looking for a single card and were considering a GTX, just get an XT. I'm just going to switch boards because XT's are the shit. :)

i believe the 25% coupons expire today, so order fast. My x1900xt already shipped.

looks like im going to have to buy a code. i might be able to get a code for $7 from this guy on ebay. I guess this is the only way to get a code. Sad people have to sell them just to make a buck when so many people need it. Guess its the world we live in now.

Same thing goes with food.
People have to sell it to make a buck, when so many people around the world need it.

$7 to save $100+ isn't a bad investment

if i had a code for a discount that i didnt need or wasnt planning to use, I would give it to someone without charging them, yes.

I went ahead and bought the code and just bought the video card for $403 shipped.

Ok which one is better 7900GTX OC or X1900XT. I know definately 7900GTX OC, but does it make sense to upgrade from 7900GT to 7900GTX OC?

Why dont u save yourself some money and get another 7900gt and SLi them? Its faster then the 7900GTX and the 1900xt.

True. For raw speed, 7900GT in SLI.

But if your concerned about HDR+AA... Then ATI is the only way to go. Nvidia can't do HDR and AA at the same time. Many new games are utilizing HDR. Seriously, what good is a game if you can't run AA on it?

I was just checking the bfg7900gtxoc at dellsb and I can see it costs $533. So is it $533-25% - $60 = $339 + tax????

I was confused too. Everyone on SB site is getting 10% off. Your coupon for 25% off will replace that 10%. You can use the $60 off $500 coupon even though it won't be $500 after your 25%. So just take the 25% off of list, subtract 60 coupon, and add tax for your total. Ground shipping is included by, I believe the $60 coupon. Either way, free ship with the two discounts. Now stop being silly and get the XT instead. It's better and it will actually arrive in a reasonable time. :p

Unless you going SLI.

the BFG 7900GTX OC price ($539) is with the 10% Small Business discount. I already tried it, the 25% WILL NOT stack with the 10% SB. So it's $592.95 - 25% - $60.00 + tax. Also, the coupon for $10 off +$100 purchase with Payapal DOES NOT stack with the 25% off as well.
