When we first checked the availability of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 260 and AMD’s Radeon HD 4870 last week, we didn’t find many models listed. The GTX 260 was especially scarce, with our search yielding no available models at all. We decided to have a second look today to see if the situation has improved.

As always, we limited our search to Newegg, TigerDirect, ZipZoomFly, and Buy.com. These are the four computer hardware e-tailers with the most reviews on both our price search engine and ResellerRatings.com, so they should be a good indication of general availability. We highlighted available models in green.
