    I have a Paypal Debit Card. If a site doesn't have it, you can still use the funds from your account.
    You can sign up on the Paypal site and it's free. It's also great for having immediate access to your money after a sale.

    Thanks for the info. I'll look into it. By the time I got back and entered my CC info...the freakin OC version sold out. (auto notify) In for the standard one. Hope it goes thru.

    I saw this on SD. Even though it's slower than the 1 GB version and even the 465, for $146, it's a great deal. I'll have to mention this to my friend who is looking for a sub-$200 NVidia-based video card.

    In for a standard one. Though, since I purchased one, you guys should know there is no way it will go through. Cancellations abound! I have awful luck when it comes to slickdeals.

    lol...if it's on SD it's most likely gonna get cancelled since so many people are placing orders. I didn't place an order (got the MSI 1GB) but I hope this deal gets honored for you guys.

    I hate that site. They steal plenty of deals from [H] and other tech forums. They also steal exclusive [H] promotions (I've noted that this deal was taken from another tech website. But tech is tech in my book. Slickdeals is hardly tech).

    I'm kind of hoping it gets canceled, I really didn't need one, why must I waste money on stuff I don't need! :eek:

    The Standard edition has been in stock for way too long. I can't see it shipping. Somebody at CV is going to have a fun day on Monday.

    The Best Buy price mistake on the Dominator GT memory came through so it's worth it to give this a try.
    The worst that can happen is your money gets refunded.

    In for one. Worst-case scenario, we get a discount code like with the MWave 5850 mistake.

    The $199.99 version I ordered is showings as in stock, but I just got this email:

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Thank you for purchasing from Chiefvalue.com.

    Unfortunately certain item/items within your order are actually on back order and we will not be able to ship the complete order. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    You have two options in regards to your order:

    - You may delete the back order item/items, and the rest of the order will be processed normally.

    - You may cancel the entire order.

    Wish these were the AR's though instead of the TR's

    That may not be important to some of you who swap frequently but it's something to keep in mind.

    Well, they show some of the standards still in stock, so I went ahead and bit. I was trying to hold out another month, but what the heck, let's see if they honor these.

    Thanks OP

    Updated email came in..My order has been sent to the warehouse and says will ship in 1-2 days. Crossin my fingers...MAYBE I actually got one coming. It would be sweet seeing how I ALWAYS bite and get the shaft with the "mistake" "out of stock" or whatever other excuses they make.

    Ordered last night when I saw this thread around 10ish, just got tracking #...looks to be a go.

    *I wonder If they will hit us for the difference, ask for the difference or have us send back?

    Thx OP

    right about now, a bunch of order takers are logging into their computers to look at the weekend orders.

    Depending on whether they made a mistake or not, they're either saying "Oh crap. We screwed up" or "wow look at all the sales our promotion brought in"

    Yup, just got an invoice and tracking number for the two I ordered. I'm building a new system and I was originally planning on a 460 1GB, but 460 768 SLI sounds better now. Plus I haven't bought Metro 2033 yet so that's a bonus.

    I haven't heard about that, but it sounds good. These cards are mostly going to be folding anyway, video memory doesn't matter there.

    maybe they make some ridiculous amount of money for every SC trial code they ship. My tracking numbers are in for the order i placed last night.
