Default I checked the tracking on my 4850...

sweet, I guess video cards and memory are made of some new alien material these days, because my package weighs 0.00 LBs...

I hope I'm not being shipped and empty box...

Are they being shipped for free? Might be, that in order to do that they list the weight at 0.0 lbs.

thanks, it's gonna be a huge jump up for me as you can see from my sig, I can't wait, first video card I've ever bought that wasn't a friend's leftovers or open box, and getting the memory basically for free after the two rebates is also a plus, I'm running my PC2 5300 overclocked right now to 740MHZ, the OCZ will be stock 800MHZ...

yeah, free shipping, almost a $20 discount because of the combo and after the two rebates about $160 for the 4850 and 2GBs of OCZ PC2 6400...

I thought my card might arrive today, given the fact that it arrived in Richmond (barely over an hour away) at 1:30ish this morning...

07/28/2008 01:32:00 ARRIVAL SCAN[I] RICHMOND, VA, US
07/28/2008 18:56:00 UNLOAD SCAN[I] RICHMOND, VA, US

wow, all I can say is...WTF...? it took them 17+ hours to unload the truck...?

and yes, it still weighs 0.00 LBs...

same thing happened to me, it arrive in CO one day, but they wont ship till the next day. I think they only ship if the package arrives at the state before the trucks go off.
My graphics card was free shipping, and it says 3.00 lbs.
