GTX 285 in stock and available
 
Infonec shows the ASUS GTX 285 as available for a pricey $509.00.
NCIX shows plenty of stock for the BFG B6G-2<SCRIPT language=javascript>if(typeof(forumadmin) != 'undefined' && forumadmin == 1){document.write("[SIZE=\"1\"][COLOR=\"#FF0000\"]Edit[/size] ");}if(typeof(isusergroup) != 'undefined' && isusergroup == 1){document.write(" [SIZE=\"1\"][COLOR=\"#FF0000\"]products[/color][/size] ");document.write("[SIZE=\"1\"][COLOR=\"#FF0000\"]Etilize[/color][/size] ");}</SCRIPT> (which I assume is the GTX285) for a hefty $529.99, but not available for sale just yet.
updated list:
EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 285 Ssc 702MHZ $561.12
EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 285 Sc 675MHZ $539.99
ASUS GeForce GTX 285 648MHZ $509.99
PNY GeForce GTX 285 648MHZ $499.99
EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 285 648MHZ $469.99
BFG GeForce GTX 285 OC 666MHZ $469.99
XFX GeForce GTX 285 648MHZ $469.98
Hopefully this means a round of reviews as well as price reductions for older models soon.

Have you not seen the prices the GTX 280 cards are going for on NCIX? I would call those some major price reductions....

Major price drops on both sides but sadly they are also tied to large MIR's which suck ass. I just warn EVERYONE to NEVER buy a Visiontek based on the rebate because you will never get it.

Urrrggghhh. Why don't I have a part-time and game at only 1280X1024? I'd love to get a GTX260/GTX280 or ATI 4870 now thanks to these price drops. Being a high school student lacking volunteer hours suck :(

@b1lk1. What happened? I've heard of bad Sapphire rebates, but Visiontek?

Agreed Sky...they're amazing...saw the 280 SSC on Dc for what...$389!!!...I would not consider a 4870 nor 60 216 Core at this time when the 280 is so cheap and affers just a little bit more!!! I'm thinking of getting another one just to try a 280 Tri Sli set-up with my (yet to arrive) I7 parts.....then get bored and throw it into my second build!!

The GTX 285's are not worth the price you pay for the performance you get, especially with the prices you can get GTX 280's at today.
