Actually, not counting the games, final price for my EZ was 240$ after taxes, shipping and rebate.
Best deal I've seen for a 7950, assuming same deal on shipping and rebates, would be close to 325$.
Only wicked case of buyer's frustration is that, less than 24 hours after placing my order and it amazingly being shipped out the same afternoon, the Myst edition magically appeared both in stock AND on sale 10$ cheaper. I originally intended to get the Myst, but it was out of stock and 10$ more expensive for a seemingly trivial shroud variance.
If i were to have buyers regret, it would be because had i waited to this week, I could have had a Pitcairn 7870 at 220$ after all in.
Though the performance would be lower, the acoustics of the card would be far better, and thus more tangibly relevant to my tastes.
Though, LOL, i did look into returning the EZ before I even opened the box, but the money lost from shipping, insurance, and shipping it back, on top of the price and costs of ordering a new card, made about as much sense to me as buying an aftermarket cooler and overclocking the tahiti le instead of just buying the 7950 in the first place for the same money.
