Default Re: Has anyone tried to get a price adjustment from Newegg?

I agree that this is a total ripoff. I know that Nvidia or its partners didn't force us to buy the cards, but it does make you wonder about Nvidia's ability to continue in this market. Their best GPU is about to be overthrown by their arch-rival. When the HD 4870 X2 releases, it will humiliate the GTX 280. We won't see a GTX 280 GX2 in its current form as the GPU is just too big to fit two of them on one card. It looks like AMD/ATI is back on top, which is a good thing for the consumer. It's not so good if you're an early adopter like me who's been ripped off.
