Amazon 'Pricing Error' Leads To Graphics Card Preorder Cancellations

Online deal-hunters are furious that Amazon priced a graphics card at $175, only to be so overwhelmed with pre-orders that it canceled them and hiked the price to above $250.

By checking out the listing for the card, which is plagued with angry 1-star reviews protesting the price change, you get a sense of the outrage, while Slickdeals, Overclock and Hardforum also are also tracking the heat this pricing snafu has caused.

Amazon doesn’t seem to be offering angry customers any compensation for the switcheroo.

(Thanks, Eric!)
