EVGA 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 available for $120 (Rs.5160) after rebates

IN A BARELY-REPORTED development, a judge has lauded evidence in a case against apparent arch-rivals Nvidia and AMD which stand accused of artificially keeping the price of graphics cards high...............

District Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California was shown an email that had passed between the two firms which suggested ways of appearing to compete with one another while keeping prices high.

Complainants against the pair include Microsoft, Dell and Apple amongst others."
