ATI and nVidia are both having problems getting chips made for their products. Demand is very high, even on the top end product. I'm surprised, at over $300, I wouldn't dare buy a video card for that much. And all the review sites that say otherwise all get them for free.
[QUOTE]Limited supply of Nvidias GeForce FX 5800 (NV30) and GeForce FX 5600 (NV31) series chips has pushed some demand to ATI, card makers said. However, a shortage of ATIs Radeon 9700 and Radeon 9500 chips has been reported and output of its new-generation Radeon 9800 (R350) series has also failed to meet demand.[/QUOTE:105104006
