Well, technically, these rebates are coming from the manufacturers, correct? So wouldn't it be Evga and XFX's bottom lines that are affected?

I sent my info in to Evga last night. After the rebate, it will mean that I paid less for my 280 GTX FTW than I did for my 8800GTX - and I purchased my 8800GTX a couple weeks or more after launch.

If anyone deserves a refund it's you I know what you've been going through and really hope things work out. I can't imagine the same offer not being extended to the rest of the world, but it may just be a matter of logisitics. Who knows what is going on behind the scenes to make all of this happen. I'm sure it's a major undertaking.

You could be right, but I'm not really familiar with these matters. I do know that NVIDIA controls the prices of the GPUs and possibly the graphics memory as well.

yeah would be nice to some euro-love - I got a BFG and a Leadtech (not too hopeful on Leadtech doing a rebate but then I paid a lot less for that one!)
