I want a 2nd 5850 for CF, but I can wait for the prices to drop back to normal. :)

Trying not to think how cool two of these XFXs would look on my Asus Rampage II Gene... "one is enough... one is enough... one is enough" :p

LMAO... If you truly believed that "one is enough", you would have never joined [H] !!!

:p

Awesome gesture XFX! (if only I wasn't broke)
You guys rock, and your products are sweet!
But now, after showing some [H]ard|OCP love, you've become my new preferred brand.

Awesome job Kyle & XFX.
I wish I could buy one right now (probably couldn't at this point anyway)
I currently have a XFX card and it and XFX support has be great.
Needless to say my next card will be an XFX
Keep up the good work

Tempting, but I think I'll wait for the 58xx prices to be gouge-free (in other words, below MSRP). It's good to see a manufacturer reaching out to the community though!

Places are getting them in all over, just seems that they're snatched up in minutes. I have to wonder how many orders Amazon took, as you can order them and they'll give you an estimated ship date.

If only I didn't have to buy my girlfriend an engagement ring, I don't think she would understand, "I meant to get you a ring but I bought a video card and three monitors instead."

There are still a few cards available. I am leaving for the weekend so if you PM me you won't get a call back until Monday morning but if you are considering getting one please send a PM. I don't want someone to not get one just because they are assuming that they are sold out already. Have a nice weekend guys!! :D

Just because demand is high, doesn't mean people HAVE to charge more.
They just see a chance to be greedy mofo's (newegg/ewiz/fry/zzf - etc).

Great deal from XFX and [H]. Please let me know when you can do a deal for 5870 and 5970. Would love to get in on that one. =)

Is there an estimated ETA on the 5970 or the 6 output 5870? Cos I'd really like to get those for Eyefinity setup. TY.

While I think the price is stupid, I totally agree with the concept. If you were selling your car, but you didn't really need the money, would you sell it to the guy offering $2000 or the guy offering $5000? Because I think that if you sold it for $5000, you're a greedy mofo. Me? I'd call it SMART, personally. You sell products at whatever people are willing to pay for them. If anything, you should be upset with the people that ARE willing to pay this price because if they weren't then XFX would have lowered it.

Installed mine late last night after removing the stickers from the cooler. It's quieter and cooler running than the 4890 it replaced.

I guess payday didn't get here fast enough for me then. :( Regardless, I appreciate XFX and the people there that made this happen for all the [H]ardforum members. You guys are great for the community, and it's great that you support us like you do!

A gigantic thanks from all of us as well. I've never had an XFX product I wasn't very happy with. :cool:

I got in on the XFX 8800GT offer a couple years ago. Still running that card today. :)
The 5850 was tempting, but the prices are still too high. The 8800GT deal was a true HotDeal.

Any word on a 5770 offer? Say, $150 + shipping?

Doh I was fixing to post a number I would be ordering until I looked again at what you typed. 5770 vs 5870.
I would like to know the eta on the x2 card and what the price point may be? I'm not really looking at playing around for Project Slumber Parties. Go big or go home. That is as long as she's gunna be black and red also. xfx has liked the green in the past thats for sure. Its odd seeing them drop a red and black card. Of course in the past I've only paid attention to NVIDIA stuff. Until recently when I read up on where NVIDIA is going. :mad: So I think after almost 18 years of AMD (recently in the last year going intel for the first time) it might be time to cross the street to ATI also.
