I don't trust any of these Dell deals, reminds be of the 8800GT scam they had and many other sour deals

That is a great deal (Although I couldn't get away with it from the wife; when she finds out about the 2x 4850's, Thermalright T-RAD2 GTX, and Thermalright VenemousX I just bought, I'm pretty sure I'll get reamed!)

But buyers might note the leadtime listed on Dell's site:

Usually Ships 3-5 Weeks

EDIT: BTW, I added to cart just to test, and tax for me brought this up to $269.63; still a great deal over other places just wanted ppl to remember tax (if it applies to their state, not sure where all Dell is located)

I had to bite on the old gtx 260 cards for 113 from dell. it may have took 2 week to get at my house but the deal went down just fine.

Perfect timing, just when I was shopping for a new card to replace my 8800gts. $15.12 tax + coupon = $267.11 still 10% cheaper than Newegg's cheapest 5850. The only gripe- ships in 3-5 weeks. I don't know what the actual turn around time or shipping time would be yet.

When I first listed the deal, it was 1-2 days, so it's probably out of stock. But they'll take the order and ship it when they come in I'm sure.

Unless it has something to do with the availability of the 5850 specifically, I would expect it much sooner. Dell always lists unrealistic ship-in times. Ive bought monitors from them that were listed as shipping in 2-4 weeks, and they shipped same day, arrived 2 days later. Would have never known if I hadn't called. And they don't skimp on shipping. They pony up for 2 day a lot of the time.

I really like Dell. Their CS sucks, but I'm a big fan of their monitors since I bought my first back in '99 (still have it, zero dp's), and they ship fast.

I wish this would have came up when I was buying mine because Visiontek just so happens to be my favorite brand.
