Good luck, what you're asking is close to impossible atm. If you're set on that price I'd wait for a couple months.

Thanks guys, Newegg is out of the question though, California tax is outrageous.

Those ebay auctions will probably end up going higher as the auction nears its close. Other than that I guess I will have to wait. I'll let all the impatient people get their cards first, and I'll wait for price drops to something more reasonable

Yeah, America has cheap taxes compared to the rest of the world. VAT can get up to 25% in some countries in Europe.

OP, not much I can tell you except what you already know, keep an eye on the sticky here and the For Sale section.

I really chose the wrong time to sell my 5870. Sold it on eBay about a month ago for $380 (shipped). Looking at auctions now with Christmas approaching, they are going for $450++. Stupid me.

Check that. Look at the completed listings on eBay. A plain-jane 5870 sometimes sells for $550+. That definitely deserves an [OMG!!].

If I would have known that the 5870s would be in such short supply, I most definitely would have waited for Christmas to sell mine. Damn. I figured Newegg would be busting at the seams with them on the second or third stock run.
