I've seen a few stores now being able to keep them in stock, so maybe the supply is creeping back up.

that's true, but supplies are still on the limited side

i posted because I personally like XFX for the double lifetime warranty and XFX typically charges more than the other vendors because of it.

at this price it is at or better than the price of the other 5870 cards

There have been quite a few 5800 series cards in stock at newegg the past few days. Right now theres four different 5870's in stock and six 5850's at newegg right now. Looks like newegg hit the motherload, buy now.

Not really, Newegg has some ridiculous pricing going on ATM... The XFX 5970 is actually cheaper than the rest :na:

for the past 2 weeks, i have seen many 58xx series cards available on the egg in the mornings, and sometimes they have still been around in the afternoon. Seems that the supply is slowly catching up with the demand? (yeah, right, at this rate, with Nvidia failing miserably, there will always be demand for 58xx series cards)

Great stuff!! I hope those eBay ass rats get hurt with this price drop...

Seems like the supply is finally catching up! I've seen 5850's and 5870's consistently in stock at Newegg, and some of the prices are actually starting to drop- The XFX 5870 is actually only $404 on Newegg today, and the Asus (only available with the combo, but still) is actually only $399!

Just wish I had the cash to get one... :-(

Don't worry, they'll only go down from here. I'm eyeing one for sometime next year (which is when I will be getting games that actually need it).

Yeah- I'm hoping when Fermi finally comes out, the prices will drop a bit, and then I'll go for one. The price margins ATI is rolling in right now, its gonna be really really hard for NVidia to compete on price.

I know, I'm really interested in seeing what happens with Fermi. If NVidia gets a good card out and prices it competitively, I might be interested, though recently I have been more of an ATI guy. I have a bad feeling that regardless of whether Fermi performs or not, it will be pricey.

Thats exactly what I expect from NVidia- their cards have ALWAYS been more pricey- especially with the monolithic die size. I also fully expect ATI's cards to outperform Fermi, but hope its close enough that ATI will still cut prices and let us have the best cards on the market for a reasonable price. When prices drop, I'll pass my 4870 to my wife and pick up a 5870.

I think itll be somewhat pricey or very pricey.
I think itll come in faster than the 5870, so at least 450$, and possibly 550$, somewheres in between, with a small chance of being even more

Well, recently (until the 4800s, of course) NVidia had been easily beating ATI, so they had no reason not to (sort of like in CPUs, whoever is winning always has a $1000 Extreme CPU). I think the reason we did not see that from ATI is they wanted to keep their image of excellent performance per dollar. NVidia, if the performance justifies it, will sell it at high cos because of how much money their new cards take to manufacture.
