The first shipment of cards is totally sold out. They are supposed to be bringing in a new batch very soon. Keep your eye out on NCIX....
Goodluck on your hunt.

Whoa, that is very pricy! I would wait until the second batch comes around. Just wait until they start doing pre-orders again.

NewEgg is taking advantage of the situation. They know the cards are a hot item right now, everybody and their brother want one. So they gouge people on the price. C'mon $275? That is expensive, especially when the manufacturer is selling them for $199 USD.
