    Well I'll hope it really is true its good for most of us! But I am skeptical since they haven't "officially"put it on the main website they might email you denying the legibility of your order.Even though it does not happen I would like to warn you.:)

    Good for you if it turn out to be true, but think about it logically, $150 is exactly the price of an upgrade from a single 460m to a single 6970m, so how can it be the price of an upgrade to crossfire 6970m?

    Once the order is in I think there is a good chance Dell will honor it.

    pretty sure a billion dollar corporation can afford to lose a few hundred dollars no problem

    thanks, and I dunno what dell is doing with their prices. I would have went for 4 years complete care but its $719.99.... $150 for CF 6970 and $50 for 330W a/c is a steal though. I couldn't resist ordering asap. As soon as I get mine I'll do a video review and post it up.

    I'm looking through the manuals now, it's really well constructed and the pictures are decent.

    Worst case scenario, you'll end up getting a system with a single 6970 due to this just being a wording error. Hope you get lucky though!

    I have a conspiracy theory:

    Neither the US or Canada's configuration pages were even offical (couldn't access from head page, links are locked out now). I would even bet the pricing mistake was intentional (I bet Dell marketing monitors and shills these forums). The low Canada (mistake) vs the high US (very high price). I wonder how many people placed orders on each site. They could probably crunch this data to see "what people are willing to pay" in order to maximize their profit based on supply, demand, and spread.
