The price just came into range and I couldn't resist :bounce: . This is BFG's overclocked version (BFGEGTX2851024OCE).

See thread here for details (two coupons bring this price).

I was able to apply both coupons today, so they've haven't expired yet.

DELL gave me a distant approximate shipping date of 5/11, but I'm in no rush (and I'm hoping that's a bit of an over-estimate).

wat?

Dell GPUs are overpriced, and they usually have a base price, along with an additional price to upgrade GPUs.

ie. The default GPU is a 9800GT, for $150
It offers you an upgrade to GTX285 for $257

The total is $407

This wasn't an upgrade deal. The base price was $380, then there were two coupons for 25% and 10% each.

I just tried to see if I could apply the coupon now (just to see if it still works), and it doesn't... Sorry guys :(  This was a fire sale (according to the message on the Dell site, it was limited either by time or quantity).
