    So a quick update, it looks like neither Scan nor eBuyer are going to have the Sapphire HD 4890 Vapor-X in-stock by Monday when I'm looking to order.

    Also with that motherboard I can't go with nvidia as it doesn't have SLI support only CrossFire, so there goes my idea of going back to the GTX275 for now.

    I'm going to look for another motherboard in the mean time as well as another possible gfx card.

    (I know some other places have that card, but I'd rather not order from a new place this close to the holidays)

    Mmm thanks, a little cheaper too. Might see if I can fit all my Scan order with them or something. Will save on the number of different deliveries too then.

    Thanks for all the advice everyone, I've ordered all the bits from CCL & eBuyer and they'll be here tomorrow :clap: That is of course assuming that this evenings snow shower doesn't repeat itself!

    Once it's all built and tested I'll take some photo's :)
