That Duke3D price is the buy it now price. Bidding starts at $3.99 so if anyone wants it, they're not going to have to pay nearly that much.
Regarding the seller "wiredforservice", I've purchased a few items from this seller in the recent past (Voodoo 1 + 2 Cards). He's very flexible regarding offers and wiped off around 50% each time.
In my opinion, sellers like /\ are selling at these prices because they know people are willing to spend the money. If buyers weren't then his feedback wouldn't be currently at 4433.
The one and only time I ever bought from wiredforservice was also a best offer. He wanted an insane amount of money for a Real3D Starfighter PCI 24mb card so I offered him half his asking price and he accepted it. At the time I had never seen one for sale before. Since then I have seen a few, but with smaller amounts of memory and only 1 with the full 24mb (which I bought, BTW, so now I have two of them). It was one of those cases where you either buy it now or risk not getting one ever. It was 1.5 years before another one showed upon ebay, and close to 3 before another one with 24mb did.
