Most reviewers state that the GTX 280 is overpriced for the performance it delivers. Heck, my rig with 2 8800 GTs is not that far behind it in many benchmarks and even beats it in several games!

these cars are very overpriced, i just wish people would be a bit smarter about it. if none of the cards would sell in a week or so, there would be huge price cuts.

Trust me when you use an app that is bandwidth intensive the difference between the 280 and 8800GT's in SLI becomes like night and day. Enabling high levels of AA on 8800GT...go ahead see what happens :)

Exactly. So many people do not seem to realize the advantages of the GTX 280 with its wider bus and more memory.

There will always be early adopters. I doubt we will see the horde of purchases like in the 7X00gtx days because the only game capable of stressing these babies, everyone has already played.
