Default NCIX GTX 260 Pricing

Okay.... WTF! Why are NCIX's GTX260's ALL priced the same as the 280's?!


WTF is going on! Haha NO WAY is a 260 worth 460+!

Example!!!!

Oh what ? what happened, yesterday they were 300$ with a price too low to display...

EDIT: Looks like it got hidden for some reasons...

and you can price match it even lower.

STILL!! Even price matching at 365 is in insane! hahaha... good god! I was preparing to get another system ready with a couple 260's in it but shit I guess I'll have to go with ATI and some crossfire 4850/70's! There is NO WAY they can have these as the pricing, they will sell absolutely zero cards!

Especially considering you can get a 4860 for 149.00 right now and a 4870 for 280!

EDIT: There is a price match for 267.00 there but I still think standard pricing for Nvidia should be at or below ATI's in order to compete... geeze. I'm a Nvidia fanboi too but those prices are even insane for me!

I'm no expert but it seems odd that the MSRP would be so high...
