Default 6800 Ultras so pricy?

I was just wondering why the 6800 gt and ultras are still a high price?

I hardly even found any but most were like $200. That's not really a high price. They are still fairly powerful cards. I didn't see the Ultra though, only the GT was at $200

They are discontinued. Most you see right now will be alot and not worth it. For the price you can buy a GT/ultra you can get a 7800GS or 7900GT.

the reason they are so expensive is because they are basically old stock that retailers paid a lot of money for but then the 6800gt/ultra pretty much became obsolete compared to the 7800gt/6800gs and they never sold them.
