Just remember guys, it is Southern Cal....as someone else Posted..folks with tons of cash (which thier is in La), will think nothing at all to spend a few hundred $$$ above and beyond MSRP....some of these folks may spend well over 3 million dollars on a home or 75 - 100K on a vehicle........500K on a boat...

Its a market for these kinds of things, same goes with any sporting even you go to there are scalpers selling tickets for more then what they are worth. If people are willing to pay the extra last minute price hike there will be people to supply them

Yep.

And description and specs are wrong, does that mean buyer is eligible for a refund?

lol that made me laugh. Almost the same price too!

Well if I got my 480's and if I knew I could sell them to get a 480 for free I would seriously think about it even if I had to wait a month to get new cards. Nothing wrong with someone wanting to make money on non essential items.

Thats not to bad really. Did you see what people paid for hockey ticket at the Olympics?
I can tell you that you would never get into the Paddock Club at a F1 race for that price.
