"Limit 10 per customer".  Do you think mining had anything to do with that?
Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

Definitely.

Newegg used to have a 1 item only - limit on high end cards like GTX590, Radeon 5970/6990 etc... For ages.

Not many other demographics besides BTC miners who would need 10 at once.

The 5870s limited you to 99 per customer.  I think Vladimir had to create 5 accounts.

6990s are a stupid buy for mining anyway. $729.99 + 8.50 shipping for ~800Mhash/sec? .93 $/Mhash, or 1.08MHash/$.

Even if you manage to cram 4 into a computer somehow (which is as I understand it not really feasible) you're pulling less than 1Mhash/$, and generating $.017/MHash (per day).

If you buy it for a casual mining/gaming machine, it's still a crappy buy as 2x 6970s are cheaper and run better, but I'm not here to argue that I guess.

What's the MHash/J of the 6990?

You're not counting in other costs:

4x6990 = 8 GPUS, you only need one computer if the mobo supports 4 pci-e slots.

8x6970 = 8 GPUS, you need two computers = two motherboards, power supplies, processors, RAM, casing, possible WLAN adapters etc.

It's actually more or less a bargain plus it saves space.

Yep, also 6990 have a better resell value.

I'd never put 4 6990's on one mobo, that was just an example. Unless you have a massive water cooling loop.

The air cooler on these things sucks, it's loud, small and doesn't do a very good job of cooling the card.
It's as if they wanted to pave the road for other companies to create aftermarket coolers for it (far as I know, they still don't exist).
