This is still bothering me a bit lol... missed this by like 1 day... hell missed 5870's at 160$ too, that was a sad day.

 5850 is like better in every single way =\.. but I guess in reality its all gonna pay for it self so I shouldn't concern my self too much.

you can still get them for $160 here: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-100282XTREME/dp/B004W75ATI/ref=pd_sim_e_2

it just doesn't say when they'll ship, but you can still purchase them and they'll ship as soon as they get them in

Which is never =o they just want to play with your money more then likely.

Alot of sites keep their stuff up saying they are getting stock but only update the fact that their supplier is actually high and dry on the 5850's or 5870's until you have an order in.

this one seems like the old stock/batch.

they are not an old batch except for the gpu chip itself.  the pcbs were actually just made this year after sapphire bought off the remaining lots of evergreen chips to sell off for reduced prices.  they have no voltage control but are stock overclocked @ 800mhz and typically clock to around 900-950mhz on stock volts

also if you are in canada shipping for any number of units is only 5.99 right now

It sounds like the lack of voltage regulation is a hardware limitation, is that correct? I was actually hoping to undervolt mine slightly for improved efficiency. Would like to know if there is any way to do this.

Someone here said you could do so with trixx or whatever (sapphire's overclocking program), though these only use like 150w stock anyway I think

I've yet to figure out how to undervolt my sapphire 5830 extremes. The lowest it'll take in trixx is 1.163, which is the default. :/
