Newegg at it again eh? Though nothing was as bad as the e6750 price jumps, for no reason what so ever in a matter of hours.

No doubt that neweggs prices are effected by the quantity on hand. I bet a couple different variables go into the pricing algorithm... next expected shipment, retail price, % markup, competitor prices, quantity on hand, which newegg shipping location, etc.

That must be irritating, but the 2900PRO is still a good bang for the buck card even at that price.

The 2900 PRo isn't very mainstream yet. Only a couple of places have them...once more shipments go out they will be cheaper probably.
