    After all the hype around the recall of the Geforce 8800GTX some were expecting shortages due to the resistor. Turns out that only a small number of cards had the wrong part installed. According to DigiTimes only 20,000 graphic cards had to be repaired.

    That's only $13,000,000 worth of video cards...

    20k is a lot considering how small the enthusiast hardware market is.
