There are a few reasons for this, and none of them is really Nvidia's fault - except for the timing.
Summertime is usually terribly slow for the industry, as people are thinking about how to spend their money on vacations rather than on graphics cards.
And the World Cup 2006 in Germany adds a further distraction, as many people paid a few hundred Euros to get to Germany and to see some of the games. That kills most of the savings for a high-end computer.
The third and undoubtedly the biggest problem is that many of Nvidia partners have trouble with allocation. The allocation problems should disappear on the first day of July, we hear, so hang on to your horses
