I'm not sure I understand what the boy is complaining about. The links he provided do show the cards listed at the price I quoted. At NewEgg the BFG card is $359 after the $50 mail-in rebate. The rebate is listed on the Pricegrabber page?????? Is he complaining because he doesn't know what/how to do a mail-in rebate?

Oooh that is a good price, and free shipping too. Too bad I just spent most of this weeks paycheck on some storage, otherwise I would buy it

I'll just have to wait until two weeks from now (have to pay the rent next week.)

Does he not see these links when he clicks?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...C-pr1c3grabb3r

http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/searc...force+8800+gtx

There are pricing errors at times with Pricegrabber but I check each link as I post the news. Pricegrabber changes the weekend specials on their page as the weekend deals expire. I'm not saying I don't make mistakes but all of those links he used showed me rebates that made the card the price I quoted at the time of the newsposting.

also mike, if he is going to try to indict you, he has to indict all the other sites that use pricegrabber as well including slashdot, so in his little world this must be some sort of mass conspiracy of monumetal purportions where as all the webmaster get toghether and try to milk there readers out of 10$ bucks....lol
