Default What, if any, experience have had with Amazon with regard to ordering computer parts?

I was just wondering if any of you have dealt with Amazon for parts. If so, what was the experience like? Returns? RMAs, etc?

I was planning to go with Newegg, but they are out of the Sapphire 5870 GPU that I wanted (should gotten off my backside and ordered over the weekend; it won't be in again until 8.26).

Of course, I could order what is available from Newegg now and wait for it and order the card from Amazon or order everything from Amazon, but I was curious about any experience with them. One advantage for me is that Amazon doesn't charge sales tax, which as a CA. resident helps.

Is one Sapphire Vapor X strong enough for today's games as well as DX11 games?

Will Corsair AX 850w PSU be enough to power this two Sapphire Vapor Xs in the future? I like the single rail concept, but at present the AX series is limited to either 850 or 1200.

Thank you

Yes and yes. And the fact that the AX series is single-rail is not that much of a good thing.
