Wow, the price wars happened early, or it's a mistake. I wouldn't say mistake though, since they have the PNY 8800GTX priced similarly.

This is a bit odd....I cannot find them on Resellerratings and the FAQ doesn't help much either:

Are they a new store?

In addition, it looks like they stole Tigerdirect's BFG 8800GTX page:

I typed in their acronym name on resellerratings and only got 2 feedbacks. It's possible that they aren't very old on the scene, but this is one hell of a way to make an impact. They have Bizrate and BBB qualifications (supposedly), so I would be inclined to go with it if I wasn't waiting for an R600 to crop up... some day...

So what's up the with rip-off of the TD page?

And their acronym traces back to Black Diamond Computers (bdcomputers.com) that is completely closed.

sounds like another mercado mall scam. if you think a place offering a 60gb ps3 for $399 is legit, then by all means send them your money. I'm sure they'll appreciate the contribution to their retirement funds.

Considering that their site is now down I kind of wonder if it was a scam.

I feel kind of bad about posting it if it was a scam. I was just really excited about a huge monster of a card on the cheap.

Looks like it was a BS site after all, they've now been replaced by some sort of shopping search engine. I wonder how many people got ripped off by those bastards.
