That's because Nvidia aggressively slashed the suggested retail price last week, but don't think the only cards you get are those vanilla reference SKUs. Have a look at today's top deal for an EVGA ACX Cooler GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card for $495 with free shipping (normally $510 - use coupon code NVEXCLS96; additional $10 mail-in-rebate).

Little Whiskers isn't the reason why your laptop may have smelled like cat urine

Other users chimed in with similar complaints, and one person suspected his cat might have been relieving itself on his laptop during the night. Following an investigation, Dell said cats are not to blame.
