well, welcome to the world of buying computer parts.

if you dont expect the prices to fall after you buy an item like this, then you probably have an extra 21st chromosome. (google it if u dont know...)

i mean, sure it sucks when you could of waited 2 weeks and saved 50 bucks, but thats how it is with any type of new technology, you have to pay for their expenditures in making the thing... its to be expected. no sense in dwelling in the past anyways...

plus, this card was well worth the 260 i paid
