For those interested:
In stock currently listed at Anitec.ca for $313.95 Sapphire HD 5850
P.S. I forgot that Anitec shipping is expensive. Good for local pickup at least.

Hmm... Local pickup is not that cheap considering that the best price I can get from Hamilton to Vancouver tomorrow would be $639 round trip on WesJet.

Then again it wouldn't be any more expensive than buying a BFG GTX 295 H2OC all things considered!

Actually, thanks to those who post up availability links. It's a appreciated! I take a look at every single one of them and then convince myself that I don't need a second 5850. Then I am sad.

Double Post for an FYI ---

PowerColor seems to be in stock currently. When I checked, there were at least 20 spread through the warehouses, but I don't know how many would be gone today due to backorder. But it may be worth a try for those who really want one before Christmas! NCIX.com - Buy Powercolor Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5 2XDVI HDMI Display Port DIRECTX11 PCI-E Video Card W/ DIRT2 - AX5850 1GBD5-MDHG In Canada.

Cheers!

I see that there are a bunch spread throughout the stores but it still says on backorder and I don't want to order a card and then have to wait weeks for it to arrive. Also is Powercolor a good brand?
