  1. 1. Feelings on Nvidia's Price Hiding Policy

    • Hate it!
    • Love it!
      0
    • Makes me want to go AMD
    • I can live with it, but it certainly makes card browsing more difficult.

HardOCP does a great job of going into the official and technical reasons of how Nvidia has hid some of their card's price from listings but I know I'm not the only who can't stand this practice.

 

So I thought I'd start a poll and discussion on how you all feel on this.

 

I wonder if there is anyway to have Nvidia revoke this ridiculous policy from the major e-tailers

 

(Yes I know this has been going on for a while but it has angered me again to the point of doing all this lol)

 

Anyway,

 

HardOCP's Article: http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article/2008/06/15/nvidia_dictates_advertised_video_card_pricing

 

Example listing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600094002%20600107147&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=100

 

Combo deal that put me over the edge: http://go.redirectingat.com/?id=3031X597717&site=overclockersclub.com&xs=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.newegg.com%2FProduct%2FComboBundleDetails.aspx%3FItemList%3DCombo.638454&sref=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.overclockersclub.com%2Findex.php%3Fshowtopic%3D185575%26pid%3D1931381%26st%3D0%26%23entry1931381

Specifically-

1x GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Model:GV-N560OC-1GI)

i dont see a problem with it at

just click on see price in cart

grant its cheesy advertising

Yeah but what about comparing multiple, price hidden, cards in the list view. Can't do that ;) (unless you add them ALL to cart... which wow I can't believe I didn't think of that! lol)

 

Still I shouldn't HAVE to do that, as this is just a ludicrous thing to do

It's annoying, more so since I can't buy anything from there, but just visit to browse various products and their prices. :/

Then go to the canadian domain. This type of corporate action is illegal there.
