I got it through best buy on a tip from Kenkickr, someone had linked here they had it on sale for $469. With shipping and tax it was $512 for me, still better then Newegg. It got put on backorder and I thought I was going to have to wait weeks for it but within 3 days (just today) I got the confirmation it's shipping. If anyone wants to jump on the bargain, I'd say Best Buy is legit on this one.

Any thoughts or suggestions? You can see my specs. My PC will probably not be upgraded again after this until I get a new board in ... oh probably round the Sandy Bridge era :rolleyes:

I'm really curious about power usuage. I realize the lights in my house are probably going to dim when I start up Call of Duty 4, but I've heard mixed results from people on wattage so it will be nice to see for myself.
