I strongly suggest that everyone email nVidia and ask them to be nice to their customers and keep their prices affordable. This may do absolutely something to persuade them but it can’t hurt. The email address is email@example.com. If you are unsure what to write, here is my email: Dear NVIDIA, Your takeover of most of 3dfx’s assets eliminates a major part of your competition in the 3d graphics card market. This gives you, as a company, a major freedom in what to charge customers for your products. You could easily abuse this new freedom, as we have seen with other companies such as Microsoft, which is simply human nature. The reason I am writing this email is to make a small request: Please treat your customers kindly. I like your products very much and I am currently using one of your cards, and I will continue to buy them just as long as I can afford them. If you start overcharging for cards I will take my business elsewhere. I would strongly recommend that you to take this request seriously because customers are what drive your business and keeping them happy is something so invaluable that you simply cannot put a price on it. I am confident that I speak for more people than my self. Sincerely, a loyal customer, your name P.S. If this is not the appropriate email address for this email, would you be so kind to redirect it to the more appropriate one.
