Don't know how many they got, but looks like they have some. I ordered 4 of the 5970s on Friday. Will update when I get them.

Nice. The only drawback : they are all refurbished.

Be very careful, none of their security/ratings logos are clickable. In the upper right corner, there's a McAffe SECURE logo. Real ones are clickable and go to the McAffe site to show the results. That one isn't clickable. Searching for them on McAffe's site doesn't return anything. Their resellerratings.com and "top rated by google" images don't go anywhere either.

They also claim to have 488 5970s in stock (you can put 488 in your cart, but 489 says you exceeded their stock limit). It's kinda unlikely a tiny store like this could afford to stock a quarter million dollars of a single video card.

We'd love to buy more of these (we're using cards for non-bitcoin related opencl work, bitcoin is what i'm doing in the off-hours), but every time I've looked at that company they've seemed too shady. I'd love to be proved wrong though, I'd buy a ton.

Not all... The ATI 5970 are new, and even the refurbished ASUS show a 3 months ASUS warranty, and the Visiontek appear to have 1 year Visiontek warranty.

I bought from these guys before, although mostly hard drives. They seem to do most of their business through ebay and specialize in refurbs, got a 10432 rating store there with 99.5% sat http://myworld.ebay.com/unityelectronics.com/?_trksid=p4340.l2559 that looks pretty damn legit to me. Oh and here is their Amazon store http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/seller/at-a-glance.html?ie=UTF8&seller=A1RITGMKOZCSA . I always recommend doing due diligence, its not that hard.

here's their reseller ratings.  This is not an endorsement for unity electronics btw, I've never bought anything there.

For what it's worth, I bought enough refurbished hard drives from them to build a total of three RAID5 arrays here over the span of about a year, and I had no problems with them, and no stolen credit card after.

That's actually pretty cool. Maybe in the future they will be one of the first major retailers to accept bitcoins.

No need to be sarcastic. Clearly this is a step in the right direction if amazon acknowledges its existence.

My mistake I just tend to assume the worst. Most opinions seem to be negative here. Not many people are very optimistic.
