And 15 cents opposed to 5 cent will definitely make a difference.

Even if was made from plastic or metal nvidia will still sell there gpu at a rated MSRP. And also keep in mine, some people only go for price/performance gpus, the higher the MSRP the lower the bang for bucks = lower sales.
That is assuming it IS metal, which is debatable by itself. And FYI, according to VR-Zone it is 250W for a GTX480. That isn't so bad. But now I feel like I am being forced to defend Nvidia (which I really have no intention of doing....) so I'm just going to sum it up with wait. Until the 26th. K?
