if all the ppl at newegg that selected auto-notify, didn't get one for $499, then NewEgg would get sued. Plenty of ppl will get them for $499.
All i know is that i bought my pair of HD5970's at 699$ back on november 23rd,wich was the very first day that the cards became available to retail,and ATI had set the price for those cards at 599$,yet the demand for them was so strong that they not only disapeared very quickly,but retail stores jacked up the prices to increase their profit margins anyhow.
Let's see what happens on april 12th when retail stores start getting their cards....If they sell whatever nvidia can supply very quickly,it's a given that retailers will want to increase their profit margins.
