I doubt that it will stay at that price for more than a few more days..........if that, I won't be selling it.
I wish I could buy 3 of them, but my girl would kill me!!!;)

I am in the market for this, but will probably spens the extra $20 to be safe and go with newegg. Unless someone else on the forum can vouch for them.

I used them a couple months ago for a ram sale they were having. Normally, their stuff is waaaayyy overpriced so I'm a bit shocked about this deal.

The only complaint I have is thier shipping fees and their packaging. They just threw the ram (unprotected) into a bubble-laced envelope and that was it. Pretty sucky of em'. Luckily, the ram worked (and continutes to work to this day in my server case), but I did my share of complaining.

I haven't checked out this "Barton sale" yet, but chances are good that if this is OEM or refurb, the packaging is not going to please you at all.

I have a friend that ordered a ti4600 back when they were hot from them, he said no problems from them so I wouldnt worry about it being a scam or anything.

Just ordered mine and it was $107 shipped///or will be shipped on 5/26... I'm hoping that these are all fresh factory batches and not Retail boxes shipped back here from Europe or the far east or something.. I guess we'll find out soon enough...

Those RR ratings give me pause. I would spend the $20 extra to order from either GameVE or Newegg. There is something to be said for a dependable/reliable track record.

It looks like thats the result of some people getting a Radeon non-Pro 9700 instead of the pro version........others say they had no problems!

I can't say I blame you but their ratings really isn't that bad.
I had a bad experince with Newegg one time and they have good ratings!(DOA PROCESSOR and I didn't get the mianboard until 3 weeks later, needless to say they would not RMA it.......processor never showed any signs of life, definitely DOA)But I had to overlook that bad experience...............although it did take a long time for me to cool off.:mad:

What is thier return ploicy? If you buy it with a credit card, you should be backed up. I can call Visa up for any problem and they instantly reverse the charges.
