They charge sales tax for shipping to CA. :)
By law, any internet store that has a B&M store in that state must collect sales tax for that state. Outpost.com is, of course, owned by Fry’s. Since you’re lucky enough to have a Fry’s Electronics in your state, you’re also unlucky enough to have to pay sales tax at their cyber store. According to the Outpost.com site: Orders shipped to AZ, CA, CT, OH, NV, TX and WA are subject to state and local sales tax.
With the great deals offered exclusively at their B&M stores, I hope Fry’s would open in the Pittsburgh area in the near future.

Is this OEM or Retail? I ask because there is a picture of the Box when you click on the card picture... Hmmm...

actually, the real question is: is it IN STOCK?
cuz it says call for availability:
Call 1-877-OUTPOST (1-877-688-7678) for Availability
This product is on back order. One of our many sales representatives can assist you in finding a similar product that is in stock. They are available 8:00 AM EST through Midnight EST 7 days a week at 1-877-OUTPOST (1-877-688-7678).
If you choose to order this product on the web, it will usually ship in 5 - 7 business days (Monday through Friday). Outpost ships on a first come, first service basis. Product availability is based on information supplied by the vendor and/or manufacturer and is subject to change if the vendor or manufacturer is unable to meet their estimated delivery dates. You have a choice of Ground Service, 2nd Day Air, or Overnight Delivery for domestic orders via Airborne Express. The default option for domestic shipping within the 48 contiguous states is Airborne 2nd day. An option for Overnight Delivery is available at an additional charge at checkout. We ship all available stock and do not hold orders until all products are in stock.
An additional delivery charge will be added at checkout for orders delivered to Alaska and Hawaii. During checkout you will see the delivery charge confirmed once your delivery address has been entered.
International delivery charges, including to PR and USVI, are determined at checkout after the delivery charge is entered. Orders shipped to AZ, CA, CT, OH, TX and WA are subject to state and local sales tax, as applicable. For Saturday delivery, Overnight service must be selected. Outpost.com does not deliver on Sunday and major holidays. Overnight Delivery is not available in all locations, including remote areas such as Hawaii and Alaska.
Overseas orders are shipped via Airborne International or DHL to just about anywhere on the planet. To estimate delivery times for overseas orders, add approximately 24-48 hours to domestic (within the U.S.) delivery estimates. Please also allow time for local customs clearance. International delivery costs are kept to a minimum.
You will be notified by email if the product is on backorder. On day 28, you will receive a second notification if the item is still on backorder. In this email, you will be asked to respond within 30 days that you wish the order to remain active and you agree to an indefinite ship date. If you do not instruct us to keep the order active, it will be cancelled after 30 days with no further notification. Call for updated estimated delivery dates.
and another question:
say you order it OVERNIGHT or 2-Day, does it still get shipped overnight or 2-day from date of order, or from date of order FULFILLMENT? if its from the date of fulfillment, then ordering it overnight or 2-day just doesnt make sense if its gonna take a while to get it in stock. anyhoo, i just answered my own question. :P

so i called up this evening.
as of 7pm EST, it is on backorder. 2-week wait. over 200 orders per the rep i spoke with. so if you want it, and dont mind waiting, i guess you could just put in an order for it. unfortuinately i forgot to ask if this was retail or OEM.
another alternative is the Visiontek Xtasy 128MB 9800 pro. 179.90, no rebates. its retail, about $10 more, but its in stock, and its ready for same day shipping. no waiting.
