Nvidia's 8800GT pricing treats Europeans as second-class citizens
Is it $199-249 or $259-399?

WHILE THE PERFORMANCE OF Nvidia's Geforce 8800GT is excellent, it is hard to chew on the fact that once again, Europeans are treated as second class citizens.
Nvidia touted a 250 dollar range for the 512MB card and $199 for 256MB one. As usual, the MSRP is the most problematic thing at launch. It is very hard to find a product that actually respects MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price)....
