Jesus, even in the wee hours of Cyber Monday....I can't find a single one in stock. Is everyone and their brother getting one? Does anyone own one?

Huh, a cursory check on a few sites shows they are hard to find.

I buy from Directron in person a lot, they're close to me, in Houston.

Check it: http://search.directron.com/sorteditems ... r9200a.php

FINALLY! I got one. Late in the afternoon yesterday Newegg threw up the Gigabyte Rev 2.0 R9 280x (which is the one I wanted) for 299, I quickly pounced.

I tried to search to see what has changed from Rev 1 to Rev 2 but Im not able to find what it is.

I bought 2 a couple weeks ago (one for myself, one for a friends build)

I was able to snatch up 2 of the HiS IceQ Turbo Boost cards for $319. I'm not sure about my friends but upon first boot I knocked it up to 1.2Ghz core and it's stayed cool, quiet, and stable. I've not pushed it more simply from lack of need. I must say though, I have no idea what revision mine may be.
