Getting sick of trying to get a HD 5870

I have been trying to snag one for 2 weeks now and I almost had 1 the other night but didn't get through the buy process fast enough. :fou: I am getting tired of camping the newegg board and hitting refresh over and over. :pfff:

I am building a I7 860 rig but I was thinking about switching it to a I7 920 and cross fire 2 cards instead of waiting for that darn card to be in stock again.

Is there anything close to the speed of the 5870 cross fired?

Thanks

Any suggestions? I have tried Newegg, Tigerdirect & Amazon so far and they are all sold out. The only places I can find it in stock are places where IDK if I want to give my credit card info to. :ouch:




Thanks. I will give it another week to try to find a 5870 but this will give me something to fall back on. :)

Except on release they were easier to get for some odd reason. :whistle:

I would have picked one up then but I didn't have the cash at that time.


Thanks eklipz330. That was one of the sites I was scared to give my info to. I have never heard of them before.

Also, I think you were the one that beat my clicks to get that sapphire card because I saw you post about it shortly after it sold out ;)
