Why is everyone always having crazy sales for the PC version of DX:HR, considering it just released? I preordered it for $34 on GreenManGaming...

Amazon frequently does sales on recently released games soon after they are released (although usually not this quick)

Probably to give you a good reason to not order it off of Steam. It'll take a while until it gets a sale there, and since most people seem to be attracted to Steam over anything else, every other venue has to offer some incentive for you to buy from them instead of Steam, doubly so when it's a Steamworks game.
 
That's my take on it, anyway.

How does downloading a game through Amazon work? Will I still be able to access it through Steam?

It's a Steamworks title, so you'll get a code to punch into Steam.

@ABK_92: Normally you would just download it from Amazon and it would appear in your "games library". But since this is a steam game you can just put the cd key into Steam as @SlasherMan said You could also download it from amazon if you wanted to.

I just bought it off Amazon. It gives you a key that will add right into your Steam library.

I had bought it for 28$ from GreenManGaming, they had alot of summer coupon discounts.   Don't regret my buy at all.
