    I understand that.

    The point I was try'n to make is the prices have been like that prior to the GTX 650 Ti Boost on Newegg.

    Check the rebates forms from all the AIBs on GTX 660s and they started 03/01/2013.
    The GTX 650 Ti Boost was released 3/26/2013

    If your with-in Neweggs reach that comparison chart wouldnt make sense. Those GTX 660s with rebates have been at that price for the whole month of March and the GTX 660s were already at $199.99 without the rebates on the 26 (Zotac and EVGA).

    Edit:
    According to another review site on release when they checked MSRP with Nvidia

    When you also do a Compare & Buy on Nvidia website on the GTX 660 you get $199.99 EVGA and Zotac OC. The other cards show up aswell with there rebates as a note.

    hmm

    199 for GTX 660 is fine but 190 would be bang on.

    So after wall of texts about special sales and rebates, we are finally back to the real world where we can agree that the 660 is $200-ish atm, while it's only 10% faster. Could you please explain the math/logic how or why would be a "better buy"?

    ... and when you say better buy, what are you comparing with the 660?.

    Wow you really that ignorant.

    Even Nvidia site was linking to $183.99 GTX 660 for 26 days before the GTX 650 Ti Boost came out. Cards on that list are still lower then $199.99 with there rebates.

    Are you not even looking at the Fact that for $199.99 you get a GTX 660 Zotac already overclocked with no rebates.

    If a consumer does not read and not take advantage of the (Mail-In Rebate) when purchasing a product thats there own fault. Those consumer just pay more for not redeaming there rebates.

    A bit earlier than estimated, but it seems as though the 1GB variants are arriving in stock
