The Inquirer reports today that there aren't much GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS supply problems. Most shops still have a healthy stock of these graphics cards:
One of the reason is the resistor-fixed cards are slowly making an entrance.The second reason is its high price. You can buy a GTX card in EU retail for about €629 - or more. If you live in Austria, the land of 20 per cent VAT you need to pay €650+.

When it comes to availability, the GTS is a winner as almost every retailer/etailer has a card or a few in. You need to pay around €500 - a lot more than $450 price that Nvidia quoted for its USA retail price. Well they are ripping us off and they enjoy the weak dollar.
