P.S. Even Apple was able to give their customers $100 rebate to early iphone adopter and keep in mind they didn't drop the price in 2 weeks....
Would be difficult as nvidia don't sell them direct, and the manufactures would never do it as there not making as much as they’d like on these cards as it is.
But the fairness, early adaptors knew the 4800 series was only weeks away, prices usually drop quite allot after launch anyway but then add a competitor’s product launch to the mix and you can expect further price drops, of course there may be a few noobs that were completely clueless that might be a bit bitter but it’s their own fault for not doing a little research.
