Consumers are pretty wild about the GeForce 8800 GT but graphics cards makers and retailers aren't really happy as the cards are in short supply and have almost killed sales of GeForce 8800 GTS and GTX cards:
The retail and etail stores don’t really want any 8800 GTS 640 or 8800GTX cards as people found them either slow or too expensive, while the back orders of 8800 GT’s are piling up. This means that Nvidia's partners can't sell any of the G80 based cards that they have in stock and they are certainly not getting enough G92 cards. Unfortunately this means it will hurt their sales numbers quite badly.
November won’t be good for these guys and we heard that some partners got less than 1,000 pieces of Geforce 8800 GT worldwide. Just to paint you a picture, a big etail store such as Alternate in Germany can sell this in a day as people want them so badly.
