This is a scenario far more common in the automobile industry - take the Honda S2000 as an example. Initial quantities for this car were so small that dealers could often get more than $5000 over the sticker price for one. Of course, we're talking about a $30,000 automobile and not a $400 video card. A price war with prices going up will never happen in the technology industry because it would be stupid. Why limit quantities of an item so the price will go up when you can make even more money by having your prices stay level (and go lower) by keeping with your same manufacturing processes?
