Beave said:order it off comp usa's website i am sure there is a way to use the store credit; you might have to order it over the phone tho
ozziegn said:here's a post from me earlier today at another forum regarding a phone call I made to one of my local Best Buys today:
I just called one of my local stores (Altamonte Springs, FL) and spoke to the computer dept. manager.
here's the phone conversation:
me - ummm, yeah. I was wondering if you had any of the ATi x800 Pro video cards in stock?
comp. dept. manager - uhhhh, whats that?
me - you're kidding me, right? you're the computer dept. manager and you dont know what the x800 Pro is?
comp. dept. manager - look man, ATi doesnt have anything that starts with an X or 800. all we have is what they make and thats the 9XXX series. so I dont know what you're talking about concerning this x800 Pro you're speaking of.
me - (I'm sitting here laughing my @aa off) good God man, I'm speechless. thanks anyways.
phone call ended.
unreal.... just when I think I've seen and heard of everything from BB and now this.
again, this phone conversation was with the computer dept. manager.

*cue drama as people see the prices*
Wonder if I can get that deal in a store. I know a regional manager that goes to my gym, and he'll be off work tomorrow so he'll be there...
I drove to 3 BB's today and 1 Fry's. All of them said that they'll have them physically in-stock by the middle of next week. IIRC, they said that the cards ship next Monday (or around then).DaveX said:I hear Fry's will stock these soon. I'll go this this coming weekend and check.
