    In stock less than 1 minute earlier and sold out within 15 seconds of posting. That has to be a record...

    They had one of every brand in stock a few hours ago but said ships in 1-2 days.

    I just upgraded to the 7970, I'm going to have to wait :/

    All I play is bf3 at 1080p.

    I really don't see a point in getting one if you're on a 580, I regret selling my 580's and getting a 7970. I give it 30 days and they will have out better ones with fancy coolers an what not.

    I just seen that too... I have the card on backorder from launch day so hopefully its a big shipment or people will be waiting longer than the 7-15 days advertised.

    I started to get one from TG but the estimated delivery of April 20th with next day shipping changed my mind for me

    I love staying with the latest technology. I only run ONE 24" monitor and have a 580. I just cant see upgrading for the minimal boost at my resolution. I want to though, just to have the latest hardware, but have resisted.

    The EVGAs were actually in stock for a good 30 minutes. Yesterday the Galaxy and ASUS cards were in stock for ~3 minutes. Passed on them, I wanted EVGA :)

    OOS but price is listed for $560. Probably best to wait a few weeks for stock to build up and prices to return suggested retail prices. We'll probably see some nice deals in a few weeks since AMD & Nvidia both have flag ship models fighting for our dollars again.

    I have to say I'm a little impressed with the pricing on the 680. The last couple years its seemed like the top of line cards always come out at $600 minimum some like $700. $500 seems actually pretty reasonable. Maybe I'm crazy.

    Why not raise the price if they sell instantly?

    looks bad when you are such a larger e-tailer like newegg. plus, i don't think they want to deal with all the people calling back a week later complaining about the price adjustments if the price drops

    Ya it is just PR, seems like now days people cannot accept anything, so if you raise the price you get lots of people freaking out. The law of supply and demand was changed to the law of price gouging and customer relations. The most ironic thing to me though is how stupid people are, or perhaps niave is the better term. If something is in hot demand for some reason the retailer cannot price gouge. OH but it is just fine for some guy to go buy that product from newegg having an automated script instantly do it, recieve it then turn around and price gouge on ebay. People who freak out just do not get that the laws of supply and demand do hold true no matter what. Even if that did not happen in most retail stores the first cards would go to "special customers" just like in an IPO. So to me at the end of the day I would rather see the profit go to a company like newegg or amazon who might actually reinvest that money into hiring people, building a better website or something and not some low life scalper.

    tiger direct has em again but estimated delivery is May 3, 2012. So basically its OOS and they are just taking your money for a pre-order.

    Shipping:
    Usually Ships in 7 - 21 Days (Details)

    IIRC price scalping only applies if the price for something essential is raised during a natural disaster, and you can't "raise" the price of something that just came out. This meets none of those 3 criteria.

    Then again, most people will consider anything priced at more than they're willing to spend price gouging. It's like people don't know what voluntary exchange is.

    I completely agree with FishHead and the voluntary exchange comment. Some people are so backwards in terms of their logic/thought process.

    Galaxy support seems pretty decent and they're pretty active on the forum. They also release some nice designs. I would buy another Galaxy product in the future.

    The link is for Gigabyte, not Galaxy. Galaxy's page states 7-21 days + actual shipment time.

    I think you meant gouging in your first scentance, I consider scalping to be what people do with concert or game tickets.
