Usually, as the size of the rebate increases, the chances that you'll actually get the check for it get exponentially less and less.
And as for the HDMI+Audio -- has nvidia got it working without the funky little extra cable you had to use with their cards the last time I checked?
And now Guru3D's reporting that this card is going to enter at $79. Who to believe?
I've actually had good luck with all my rebates when purchasing through newegg, so I don't mind considering them in the final price. Newegg has gone to great lengths to make sure the companies stand behind their rebates.
As for HDMI+Audio, I don't care how it work, as long as it works. Yes, you have to connect a cable to the card from your sound card, but it still achieves the same in the end. It is just one less driver to cause conflicts at the end of the day too. There are benefits to both methods.
