    Usually I love Newegg... except when they bloat prices.

    When people stop buying them like candy.

    Retailers are reporting record breaking sales with the 8800GT.

    $329.99 is a lot of loot for a card that is supposed to retail for between $220.00 to $240.00 USD.

    In a couple weeks when all the hype is over I'm sure the price will come down.

    Actually $329 isn't exactly a rip off considering the great performance of the card, but it's still way over what the MSRP is.

    I was hoping the 640Mb GTS would drop in price as a result of the GT release, but that's not happining either.

    that's the SSC version.. but still way overpriced, even for a pre-OCed card.

    Since day one, I've watched NewEgg artificially inflate the 8800 GT prices. Glad I got mine locally with a 12% off coupon.

    Well if you consider about $30 over priced. The lowest I found it was $299 and that was AT EVGA lol.

    Right, that is the MSRP for THIS eVGA card,....$299. Only expect ~$250 or less for the bone stock cards people ;)

    When Newegg is out of stock on a product they sometimes jack the price beyond reason (adding auto notify) and they sometimes simply remove the item’s page. A lot of the times when the item is back in stock they lower the price back down to an almost sane level,….not always though,….

    ...and Amazon, even tho they're only doing preorders, as least that's a website that's actually selling their cards for $10 UNDER MSRP, with *free* S & H.

    Yeah, I may probably look at the 8800GT at Best Buy myself. Seems like after seeing Newegg prices, going brick and mortar would probably not feel so bad. Either that, or hope that Amazon will release their eVGA cards already.

    newegg has dropped way off my list b/c of their price inflation, shipping charges, and no return policy. I used buy everything from them. Directron has my business now.

    For the people within the US. I would say one thing........

    Dont get it from Newegg.......the eVGA website has the 8800GT for 269.99 which is far better than what newegg has them for.
