And being I have spent so much time I mean numurus hours on the phone with Dell sales people who did not even know this card existed much less how to locate and order it. And just felt compelled to share it with my fellow gamers.
As for the question of is this deal still available? I am not sure but I would recomend calling mark and explain you did not order because of all the doubt and figuired it would be another let down or you thought it was the desktop version and it was just too good to be true somthing like that and ask him what he can do price wize who knows he may be able to help. But on the other hand I was told because I mentioned some canceled their order and reordered it from the acessories site he said that it was going to delay their order further and cost more.
If I am not sure about somthing I will say Im not sure. Or if I don't know I will say I dont know. But Im not the kinda person to blow smoke up someons ass. So for those who dont beleive me thats cool and for those who do and shot me the thanks
you are very welcome Happy gaming all
Thanks for the mature post Jeff. We appreciate your work.
The problem is that so far these cards are vapourware to those who spoke to Mark. All that seems to be happening is that the ship date passes, and we get an e-mail stating it's delayed 7 days. Then, after the delay of 7 days, we get another e-mail with another 7 days delay on it. I honestly wish Dell would just cancel these orders if they don't have them in stock, or if it was just a price mistake. I'd rather know it was cancelled right now, then wait a month to FINALLY have it cancelled.
What pisses me off even MORE is that even AFTER a bajillion people have ordered these cards, Dell has the GALL to THEN add the 7800 upgrade on their website! Way to go advertising a product that REALLY doesn't exist at the moment. I find that to be in poor taste. 5-7 days shipping time it says. 5-7 days my left buttock! It said that 7 days ago! Clearly Dell is blowing a lot of hot air.
But hey, who knows, my card really could ship on Wednesday as that e-mail says it will. (Yeah, right)
