I have seen footage like this before...usually from a country in Africa...or parts of the Middle East, during war, famine, or after a natural disaster. It usually involves a bag of rice being tossed into a group of starving people....Rarely does it involve a $2 waffle maker and some ass crack.
The last time I saw this was in Vancouver at the DT Bay. The staff were throwing 2010 Olympic mittens on the table only being gobbled up by consumers.

The 5970 is a pretty sweet price, but beyond my budget. I guess I'll go for the 6870 or similar.

im not certain on the quality of the 560 vs the 6870 but from 1 benchmark i looked @ they're about the exact same so go for cheaper?

We weren't really looking for anything, just wanted the experience. Both stuff mostly for our baby and went grocery shopping as we were there already anyways. It's just like boxing day here deal wise. If you miss the door crashers you missed out on any kind of good deal.
honestly i dont feel it's ever worth it anymore to go out and stand in line in the freezing cold...man that must be harsh on a 1 month old...

honestly if you want to get the value for your buck...hold on to that 5750 for 2-3 more months...new generation of video cards are just around the corner.

We never stood outside to wait in line. By the time we got their, Bellis Fair was already open. The baby was probably the most comfortable out of everyone there, sleeping soundly in his bucket.
But yeah, will never go again unless we were actually after something
