Good thing I bought it the moment I saw it in stock on directcanada.ca. It was in stock yesterday, it's already 'not available' today. The price was $301.
Maybe I should've picked up 2.

Strange there appears to be 2 model numbers (on many sites) for the Shappire 5850, although I don't see any difference in the specs.

model part #21162-00-50R, NCIX $319.99, BestDirect $309.10
model part #100282SR, NCIX $319.99, BestDirect $309.10
... at least a few are showing up.
btw, $8.99 shipping promo at BestDirect, and at NCIX the $3 shipping code (BlackFriday) is still working I believe.

I beleive #100282SR is a Dirt 2 Game Edition and the other is not. Usually, there is a price difference of about 10$, but considering the availability issue with these cards vendors are not really making a distinction anymore.

According to the Sapphire website, the #21162-00-50R is the "game edition" bundle, as do other sites....

Guess I'll find out if I get Dirt 2 when my card gets here.

I think all of the 58xx cards come with Dirt 2 and the 57xx cards come with a Battleforge serial key. Im going on that estimation because I have gotten about 5 or 6 5xxx cards for customer builds varying from xfx,powercolor,HIS, asus.

Thumbs up

Got mine off a friend for a deal and I've unlocked the bios...very sweet. This should keep me for awhile anyway.

They also list the Dirt2 Coupon as included.
