Default Arre people crazy?

The 8800 GT is going crazy on ebay. One is selling for $700. Why when you could buy 2 and more for the same price. Folks that have one should put it up on ebay and then use the moeny you earned to buy a better card. Or give them to me for free :p.

But why would someone buy it? When they could get TWO?

Same thing happened with the PS3 and now look at home many of them there are and better yet no games!

It's all because people don't want to wait a few weeks untill more come in.

Unfortunately there is WAY too many ppl like that. And therefore there are also ppl that take advantage of these ppl. That's how the world spins.....
