A few weeks ago I replied to the above as follows:---

Out of stock. Never to be replaced. Value for money for too good....
Manufacturers have moved to the much-cheaper-to-produce XT versions.
Same here in the US. Any remaining 5900nU have inflated prices.

Well, I was very wrong.

Dabs have just 8 in stock@ 129 pounds as of a few minutes ago.
Picture shows the original nVidia 5900 reference heat-sink design,
which is the giveaway clue.

I do hope "The Old Man" is reading this posting, as I obviously
can't email him....
