This is a double post, but I thought it should be in it's own thread.

Here's a GTX 280 at TheNerds.net for $317.99 plus $19.08 UPS ground shipping, looks legit, they currently have 8 in stock as of 10:43 PM MST

I would buy one but I would have to upgrade my PSU.

EDIT: The web site has changed the price back up $443.99

Awesome price.

Hopefully this is where all the GTX 280s are heading.

is PNY considered an inferior brand?

By some, maybe, but I've never had a problem with them. I'd put 'em behind eVGA, BFG and XFX though.

For awhile i considered them to be the best, during the 6800 series and prior.
If I'm not mistaken they "used" (few years back) to be the only company that had the rights to the sell quadro's.
(please correct me if i'm wrong)

Well, since at this point I would almost guarantee that all gtx280's area all coming from the same factory, just each vender is slapping their own sticker on it. In a couple of months you should start seeing mfgr custom boards.

I would bet good money that someone goofed, but... If it's the posted price and those lucky enough to complete the transaction should get the $319.99 price. It looks like about 6 were sold at the lower price before it went up.

to many different stores made the same mistake, this could be the glimpse of things to come. maybe they jumped ahead of time on next price reduction

Prices like this would be great for new buyers, but it completely sucks for current owners looking to sell their cards, I sold my 8800 GTX not long ago and it looks like by the time I sell my GTX 280 it will be worth even less...
