Well, I don't have any proof that it's Nvidia directly. It is, after all, the season. So prices will naturally rise, but from 509.99 to 569.99 in this short of time? Something has to be up from the source. And on top of that raise, there is the seasonal price boost.

Doesn't it makes you wonder why ATI would release something before there were stable drivers?

It's not like they should be in any rush :| GT300 is /still/ a couple years from release...

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.
Tell me, where did you see a GTX 295 for only $219.99?

Dual PCB. Older reference design. Supposedly slower. I don't think it's a whole lot slower. But I also buy EVGA for the benefits.
