    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know 3 -5 top online retailers that will probably have the new Nvidia's card in stock ready for launch. So I can register on that site etc.
    I want to be good and ready for when the time comes. :D

    Thanks again for all your help :)

    Speaking of, where are the reviews? It's after midnight on the east coast, figured all the review sites would be trying to get their reviews out first to get the most page hits.

    If im not mistaken, Nvidia's NDA ends at 6pm. So I guess some websites are waiting for that time :(

    But hey, its already 6pm somewhere :D So yeah, some reviews would be awesome.

    Ok back to topic.

    I am currently checking out Newegg.com and Zipzoomfly.com, I dont know of any other good ones.:banghead:

    Taken from the link, I posted. Once again this might be fake.

    If these are the true model numbers for the new EVGA Video Cards. This means that both cards will have the usual Lifetime warranty from EVGA, cause the model numbers end with "-AR"

    You can get more info. about the EVGA warranty here:

    It doesn't look very accurate. I don't know how they benched but the numbers for the 5870 look totally out of line.

    I think you're putting the cart before the horse here. But then again some people are going to buy them no matter what.

    Yeah, I know what you mean on that one. I wanted one when I heard about them, but from what I see its a 2900xt. just not priced like one.

    If you get Fermi make sure you have lifetime warranty. Running 95C and suck back 320W when playing game for less than 1min time is no good and loudest fan don't seem to help all that much :cool:
