Black Friday deals. When I made the thread, the standard Evga GTX 260 Core 216 was 209.99

Nope. Prices were before the Black Friday event and there are no GTX 260 cards listed in the Black Friday sale.

So you checked 1 website and saw the high price and so concluded that Nvidia had jacked their prices up?

Of course not ;p. I shop around. The highest instance of price raise I've seen so far is the 295. Up from 499.99 to 534.99 Was 509.99 at another place and went to 534.99.

Are you still looking for some nvidia cards to run SLI Grant? If so, you might cincider checking these out. Not the most powerful. but in SLI, they pack a decent punch. plus they are ecenomic. It seems that no one looks at the older technology. Look at the benchies.

GTX 295 @ NewEgg.com

It may not be Nvidia, as I can't view their per unit price, but damn. This is getting out of control.

EDIT: I do see that it is the SuperClocked version, so it didn't quite go from 509.99. It was more like 219.99 for the SC.
