Newegg has been out all weekend. How reputable is tigerdirect?
The ones that are buying, are you buying this card or waiting for other models?

More about : gtx 680

I have purchased many items from TigerDirect over the years, and have never had an issue.

ATM I do not have the cash to get a 680... one day.

TigerDirect is very reputable. NO e-tailers have 680's in stock anymore. Last I heard it will be April before more become available.
I will also wait on the later releases of Keplers like alvine is doing. I don't like the idea of buying the first production run of ANY item.

I ordered from tigerdirect when they said they had it in stock then they put me on backorder. I canceled my order and won't be buying from them again.

THIS^

I am very disatisfied with TD for this exact reason. I went thru the same thing. Cancelled my order after I was able to reserve the last 680 at microcenter. $547 with tax.....

I live in the Netherlands, so I have a million choices, none of which apply to you lot.

Neither will I be getting a 680, since I both:
A. Am perfectly happy with my 6970
B. Don't want to spend cash now I'm saving up for something else
C. Can't justify a 500 Euro graphics card. (500 Dollars would be ok though)

Cheerz :sol:

I personally go for TD because i get one day shipping since the warehouse is in Chicago and only 4 hours away from my place. With newegg its usually 7-10 day shipping for the cheapest

Im not buying either ..... while being the 1st kid on the block to get the new shiny thing has its own benefits, I much prefer the to wait till the reference cards have been out and run thru the mill and manufacturer's respond with the tweaked no reference designs. The 570 was the bets example of this when early adopters were burning up their PCB's when overclocking ..... vendors non reference designs with 8 and 10 phase VRM's made that problem a distant memory.

Non reference designs with bigger / better coolers and beefed up PCB's pay nice dividends on what OC you ultimately can reach and cooler running cards give ya a lil bit of longevity insurance.

I browse thru newegg, TD, and Amazon. I'll get the best price. I will wait for the excitement to die down a bit. Supply is short as expected.

I like this card. It can do 3D, Cuda for my Math intensive apps, and 3/4 monitor.

well I'm on a gtx 285 and just ready to upgrade. Was going for the 580 but for 80-100$ more for the 680 I don't see why not. I'm on a single monitor @ 1920x1080 so I don't really see myself OC'ing this card

I built a I7 2600K Nov last year. I decided to wait for next gen Nvidia Card which is 680. I can't use AMD since i want 3D. I need a min of 3 monitors so the 580 gen is not an option for me. The 680 will fit my need.
