Hey guys, This is my first thread that I have posted here.

So I have spent the last 2 weeks trying to figure out which gpu I wanted to purchase, I already had a ati 5670 that I got like 2 months ago. well my computer was the bottleneck for that gpu, YES, it really sucked. It worked better but I only got a 5.6 WEI score, lol... Anyway so I decided to build my first computer, So I started ordering all new parts from new egg, and built my very first computer about 2 weeks ago. I figured I would stick with the 5670 but that was a mistake, lol... I want more so I purchased a gtx 460 from Newegg 2 days ago and its still has not been shipped, I have contacted them and nobody got back to me, I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem?

If it was not for OCN, I may have made the wrong decision like I did with so many other parts with my computer. You guys are great thanks for all the help OCN...

***edit, the amount has already been charged to my card...

Yes they have more than one warehouse. Some in CA, one in NJ, and some others. But I would not worry. EVERY time I have ordered from the egg I ave had my shipment within 5 days. And my list is like 75 items long. Newegg is one of the few remaining businesses that I admire for their customer service, speedy response/shipping times and hassle free order process. Not to mention their competitive pricing. I am sure it is either already on the way, or in process of being on the way. And gtx460 was a nice choice.

Like the post said before if its something you really need or want to be delivered by just the shipping time rush processing is the way to go. Im trying to think if I have ever ordered w/o rushing but I don't think so. I think is was 4 hrs tops my order was shipped and had a tracking number.

Be patient, it will be shipped, if you ordered it passed hours of operation, it will be shipped the following day, and will remain as "Charged". Its on time, no worries, it will be shipped in 3 business days. Say its Monday, you'll get it Wednesday (Provided it isn't a Chasis/Case), If you order Friday past the operation hours, it will be sent out of the warehouse the following day. Humans work at Newegg too, you know, they get paid, go home, and have a life.

Its completely normal, not a problem at all, no need to worry.

I know what you're thinking though, it happened to me seeing I get off of work at 8:30, and I'm at school from 5:30am till 2pm; I really only order past operation hours. Or on weekends.

Yeah, I have spent like 2 grand there in the last 4 weeks. and I always ordered tuesday or wednesday and I would have it around noon on friday. Thats why I got a little worried. This is the first order from CA, most came from NJ or TN.

I found it for a deal, came with Iron Man 2 and Just Cause 2. Don't care for the game much but a free game is a good dea. I do whant the movie though, lol...

Yeah but the order status is charded and it has been since thursday evening. I made the order late, it was around 9pm est.

They'll get around to it, they might of ran out of stock on certain items you purchased, and may have to wait for a shippment, late sunday, early monday. If the fault is on them, they might reimbusrt you shipping charges, unless you got the Egg Saver (Which is a crappy-ass shipping method)

Yea I just ordered some part's yesterday and i have noticed that today it took longer than ever to get my tracking number.

Normally I would get it a few hours after my CC is charged. I never take rush processing, I want to get my stuff that I paid for, something that will last for years to come, won't matter if it came today or tomorrow

I always do rush shipping.

"Ok, Checkout"
"Do I want Rush Shipping? Ahh wat teh fook, *click*"
"Oh wait I didn't realize I just wasted $3 that did absolutely nothing"

I wish I had a place like that to go to. My best place to go is tigerdirect, and that is owned by compusa and I worked at a compusa like 10 years ago and I refuse to go there now.

I just got back into computers really, my last computer was an hp and it was ok, I paid under 500 for it and it did the job, but now I want better and I just built a my new computer and wish I would have ordered different stuff. I did not find this place until after I ordered everything. opps, lol... I need to get a better psu next and not sure if I want to upgrade to a better cpu. I'm thinking of getting the 1055t but I don't know if I want to yet. I just built this computer like 3 weeks ago. I think after my GPU comes in I will be good for a while. Lets hope at least, who really wants to stop upgrading right, lol...

Thats how Tigerdirect was about 2 years ago, there warehouse had a tiny store about the size of a small radioshack so you could go there and buy stuff. It was nice, all the people that worked there were like us that were crazy about building computers, most were younger kids that just like computers. Now that CompUSA owns them they are like best buy. Sucks...
