    You can pre-order a Card

    here , but they are not available just yet. Looks like your gonna have to wait until the end of the month.

    But, do yourself a favor, get a 9700 Pro and save yourself some serious cash.

    In the US EVGA has released an FX card. But the others are right don't waste your money on the FX. Unless you pre-ordered (and maybe not even then) there is pretty much no way that your going to get the Ultra version of the card which is the only one that comes close to the 9700

    the ultra is basically an overclocked version of the 5800 card... the 5800 itself is not so bad... it performs somewhat @ the level of the 9700 NON-pro... @ a slightly higher price...

    but if price is not an object.. to each their own...

    simple equasion:

    noisy+takes up too much room+overpriced+ omething out there for less with equal or better performance = rip off

    :D

    and thats for the average game user, i think that the 9700Pro wins over the 5800, for abover reasons.
