Sorry to hear.

In my experience, Newegg has been charging more and more for power supplies, and the AX850 is no exception. If the price is right, I would stick with Amazon and not look back.
This is OCN, you can never have enough. I got a HX1050 to run my one GTX 580....feels damn good. I left the door open in hind sight of a second in SLI.

That's the same mentality that has gotten me in so much trouble lately. The spirit is willing, but the wallet and girlfriend are not complying.

Watercool or pay rent? Third GTX 580 or car payment? AX1200 or eat something other than Ramen noodles? Sadly, these are all tough choices...

I have no idea why guys let their girlfriends of wives push them around. Must be a American thing.

So looking after your family is less important than computer hardware?

Well, I have some good and bad news/luck. Newegg agreed to take it back for a refund -restocking fee, but Amazon sold out last night of the AX850.

LOL! Spoken like a true adolescent.

A relationship is like a dance that transcends any nationality. If you constantly step on your partner's toes, you'll be dancing by yourself.

For what it's worth, if I respect her enough, she does cool things every so often like buy me $300 worth of watercooling fittings, even though she doesn't fully understand why I need it.

Wow, you really can't catch a break huh?

It looks like you can still order it, but there will be a wait time until Amazon receives their replenishment stock. The good thing is they usually are very quick in getting new shipments in because they're such a giant operation. Plus, they do keep you informed once something is back in stock and when it officially ships. You could try the contacting their customer service to see if they can give you a better ETA, as they are pretty responsive overall.

In the end, if you have a spare or backup PSU to hold you over, it might be worth waiting. If not, it looks like Newegg may be the next best choice, as they offer the same base price before the rebate.

Microcenter may be something local for you to check out, but sadly they have jacked the price back up on the AX850, and I don't know how far away you are from the Fairfax location. This wouldn't be my first choice, however, if you need it now you do pay extra for it, but that will at least get you up and running soon:

Just bought an AX1200W. Overkill for now, but plan to get more drives and crossfire some higher end cards in the future.

Sign me up also. I bought an AX1200 last week to replace a dead Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200. I love the AX1200. I will be adding a third 6950 when I can find a unlocked reference model.
