    yup and I realized that the best bet for me at least is NE as there is no sales tax and with Shop runner I get free 2 day shipping. Where as I would get free shipping on Amazon but the tax would be almost $50

    Along with the non existance cards in stock, at least with Canadian e-tailers, the prices are starting to creep up as well

    Yup, all cards at newegg released at $499. Now, before even returning to stock, they've crept up as much as 30 bucks.

    OOS already :\

    I would consider paying above msrp at amazon, but not at newegg where the 8$ shipping and 7% tax increase the price another 40$

    EDIT: amazon has a pre-order page up for the EVGA GTX680 for $510. I put an order in.. I can always cancel it and Amazon won't charge until shipped

    Careful with that pre-order at Amazon. I ordered a coffee maker from them in February on pre-order as they had the best price. They then lowered the price another $10 so I went to cancel my pre-order. They told me that my order had already shipped even though I hadn't gotten a tracking number. To make a long story short, I tried to cancel on Saturday night and my item didn't actually get shipped until the following Thursday, even though they charged my card on Monday. It's the last time I'll do a pre-order with Amazon.

    I've spent thousands at Amazon and never had a problem pre-ordering, so I'm not worried. If the price drops ten bucks I'll eat it.

    I've never had a problem pre-ordered at Amazon either. I actually think one time they gave me an Amazon credit after something dropped in price after I pre-ordered it.
