Default XFX 7800GT Still High Priced

Why is the XFX 7800GT still priced at such a high value at newegg? The card is over a year old and has hardly dropped a price since then. I mean it still costs $279.99 at newegg, yet the eVGA one costs $194.99 and is clocked higher! Am I missing something here? Does newegg have it's products misslabled? The XFX 7900GTs cost around $260 at newegg and have 4 more pixel pipelines. The eVGA 7900GTO costs $253.99 has an extra 100Mhz clock compared to the 7900GTs and 512mb instead of 256mb, and still costs LESS than the XFX 7800GT at newegg.com. So this must be just a typing mistake right?

I think their supplier can they back their stock if it doesn't sell, so they don't have to lower the price (and make a loss) in order to make it work.

Similar to the pricing of the 6800 Ultra, when the 7800 series was released. On the topic of newegg I heard a rumor they were going to open a branch in Europe? Has this happened already?

Mmm German online shops better be willing to have execptional customer service and support (the kind that will lose money to keep a customer) to keep up with the egg.
