Hey, I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me where the best place or site would be to get one of the ATI Radeon HD5850 GPUs. Also, what brand is best and what the average wait time is for these cards because as I understand it there is a real shortage of these cards and a lot of site that I have checked are out of stock.

www.newegg.com is the best in the US.
www.tigerdirect.com for many other markets.

Best brands are Sapphire (quality and support) and XFX (double lifetime warranty).

Wait time is honestly unknown. The chip manufacturer (TSCM) has not had a lot of luck with the new 40 nm chips and they've pledged to have better yields it's a guessing game for us all as to when that will pan out.
