Waiting sucks, but when it's due to parts shortages, I guess you just have to convince yourself the wait is worth it.
I've got to be somewhere near the front of the line for the PCI-E Ultra 6800 cards. I paid for my June 23rd.
Since everyone is having trouble getting the new high-end parts, I figure the same system (basic hardware) would be waiting no matter who I purchased it from in June.
After the first couple of months, you settle into it and feel more at peace with the situation.
A drink now and then doesn't hurt, either.
Hopefully, by the end of September more of us will be smiling with our shiny new AW's.
