I will definitely be updating the forum on my experience with xfx 280xs. I have a good sample size so... we should have pretty conclusive results one way or the other.
unfortunately ive never owned amd cards before so I anticipate killing one finding out why I love NVidia so much. ive not yet managed to kill an NVidia card within its useful lifespan, and I have run some really stupid settings on my 570s.
ya basicly it was xfx or a maybe on Tuesday order. I decided to cover my bases, if these things are this hard to come by I don't think ill have any trouble unloading them on CL or w/e.
I wonder why more people in the east aren't buying them all up, theyre shipping them back over west right now, im assuming they arrived over here in the first place, so... clearly easterners have not been bitten as hard by the coin bug. that or i don't know much about international shipping. as far as getting a 280x in Vancouver area right now, gl wit dat. im buying all them, u can call me if u want one.
ask nicely I make u a good deal on a beautiful xfx card, top of the line. way better than asus and msi and gigybite.
