Ok I give Chumbo credit for having the lowest BFG 6800GT PCIe cards around comming in @ $399.99. BUT how can u be a BFG supplied company and run out of stock and not get anymore in. I order 2x6800GT from them 2 weeks ago the status is "on order" which is kool since they havent chargeded my credit card, but when I call the customer service line I thought I was havent a flash back of DOOM3 "You'll get it when it's DONE" I ask the nice lady if she knew an estimated ship date and she said maybe 2 weeks to a MONTH? WTF come on Chumbo, you are a direct supplier of BFG cards. Put a foot in thier azzes and get our cards out!

If they could, I am sure they would. That's not a Chumbo problem per se, but an availability problem common to all PCI-E Ultras.

Dual 6800's? Lucky guy, and there is a definite shortage of PCI-E hardware right now.

What is causing all these supply problems? Sure, demand is high, but didn't anybody plan for this?
