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.
In this situation they will be lucky to sell them for wat they promised their customers. After all the other disappointments the past six months, nV fans will leave nV if nV raises the prices.
