But how else will the people who grab a 5970 rub it in the face of those still waiting for a backordered 5870?

I'm not worried, if you want a card, be patient, and throw up a backorder on ncix. In the meanwhile, take the money you WOULD of been spending, invest it, and then take it out once your card is charged and the item shipped.

My 2cents.

The problem with Extreme PC is that as far I have heard "In Stock" for them means "We don't have it right now, but pay us and we'll ship you one when we get it."

Cheers!

Well I guess one could always call and ask if they really do have stock.
Thanks for the heads up,I will call them before I press that checkout button.

Nah I buy out of province mostly just due to the taxes.
Extreme PC 5970=699+tax and ship 815 total.
NCIX 5970=699+tax and ship 749 total well its what I paid
