    Got mine confirmed via Novatech for delivery tomorrow but it looks like my Asus Sabertooth mobo hasn't come in today so i'm going to have to wait a bit longer to build my new rig :-(

    Yeah you could import from the USA but theres a good chance customs will sting you with VAT,it happenend to me when i ordered my case from California.

    The only way to get around it is to ask the seller to send the item as a gift(which does not always work) or RMA return.

    No sign of activity on my account yet, the retailer has now got 2 EVGAs in @ £876 and 1 Gigabyte @ £827.99 so looks like I'm the only one who's ordered from them.

    I wonder how much the GTX 670 will be? If they're £350 then wouldn't it make more sense to buy two of those for SLI than a GTX 690? The benchmarks leaked so far suggest they come close to GTX 680 performance and two would be almost £200 cheaper? And they wouldn't heat up your hard drives either! ;)

    EBuyer have a Gainward GTX 690 available to pre-order for £854: http://www.ebuyer.com/368517-gainwa...displayport-pci-e-graphics-card-4260183362661

    I have, on several occasions, for PC hardware (BD drives and so on) and they've always been excellent.

    Hmm its an Asus card,i dont like there RMA process even though there hardware is good.

    Im now looking at a Gigabyte one which do have great RMA,im gonna give scan til 14:30 to get some stock in EVGA cards,if they dont im gonna pay and extra £60 and get a Gigabyte for £899 from somewhere else even though i got my EVGA for £840 there hard to get and i dont want to wait past the weekend either!

    Cheers Daz btw.

    You might want to hold out on ordering those GTX 690s as the GTX 670 SLI review, posted by Guru3D, makes for interesting reading. 2 x EVGA GTX 670s can be bought from Scan for £600 (the SC version for £312) yet it matches the GTX 690 in many of the benchmarks. The disadvantages are they use two slots and consume 23 W more power. The GTX 690 costs almost £900 yet two GTX 670s can be had for £600 (or £624 for the SC ones). Talk about shooting yourself in the feet! :p

    All the Kepler cards seem to be awesome (I know my GTX 680 certainly is), perhaps too good, as there's no reason really to buy a GTX 680 at £420 any more if you can pick up a GTX 670 SC for £108 less and match it for speed...

    Ouch!!

    I've not heard anything about my order yet. Not even had any emails to show order status, the order history says nothing about whether it's been picked, packed or shipped so looks like a phone call tomorrow to give them a kick about their shoddy order processing and info!

    I bought my two HD 5870s from them in 2010. They're pretty good though a little more expensive than other e-tailers.

    This is the thing that i realised early on,some retailers will get orders and some wont,just because there advertising it dont neccessarily mean that they have it..EVGA are impossible to get hold of atm.

    Just like when i went for an X58 in Dec 2008 EVGA had a worldwide shortage for few months,always the same with them if you want there stuff right away.

    Scan have some Asus and Msi models in right now and Ocuk have Msi Asus and Gigabyte right now also,i would avoid asus tbh as there rma aint the best.

    They had the same prices as everyone else at £899 although yesterday they were £30 more expensive at £929.
