Frankly I'm amazed that both of the 5850's listed on NE are still in stock. Is it possible that AMD correctly anticipated the relative demand and shipped out a lot more 5850's than 5870's for the first go-round?

I think its got more to do with the fact that alot of people are still at work and the sudden announcement (No deactivated links several hours ahead of time).

looks more like either Newegg anticipated or all early adopters jumped on the HD 5870 bandwagon so much so as to weaken initial demand for the HD 5850.

I chose to go with the HD 5870 mainly for the most powerful single GPU solution for 3 monitor Eyefinity.

Good luck to all with their HD 5850 purchases. :)

The same thing happened to me last week when I went on an ordering/canceling spree trying to get the 5870. Got the audit taken off on Sunday and decided to give the 5850 a go instead.

FYI I talked with my credit card company after my charge was declined, they said a lot of suspicious activity goes down at new egg... regulars may want to keep your credit cards authorization dept. phone # on file.

I'm A OK with them looking out for me, just made me nervous when im sure their are limited quantities of this card.

Ok, just ordered one too. I feel guilty, but not too guilty since I know Nvidia is taking their sweet time now.

edit: Now I feel a bit better "Game Bundle: Dirt2 download coupon (game avail 12/11)"
