    It was to be expected in anticipation of the GeForce GTX 650 (Ti) release. AMD's Radeon HD 7700 and 7800 series graphics cards keeps dropping. It's not an official price cut, but rather AMD's partn...

    I just might be able to afford a HD 7850 now. Honestly I havent seen a worthy card to upgrade too that wasnt over $200+ at the minimum since I have bought this card. I paid $160 for it 2 years ago. Hell I didnt get an upgrade over my 4870 performance wise but I did go from 512 to 1gb vram and alot better power consumption plus dx11.

    Specially if the 650 TI dont match the 7850. They was a big gap between 7770 and 7850, look like the 650 - 650 TI just hit in the middle of the gap.

    This price should just make the card more appealing.

    At the same time, thoses cards are out since a while now 7-8month and we slowly approach the end of the year.

    Is a 7850 a worthy upgrade from a GTX460 768mb @1080i I dont put alot of AA on anyways.

    Even thou the GTX460 plays every game good I feel I need to upgrade :)

    If you feel GTX460 is fine dont upgrade.

    Wait for even more price drops, maybe even GTX660 ti? ;)

    yeah price drops are good, just wondering what keeps happening to cause all these drops as the gpu line are very good in comparison to nvidia

    I'm tempted to get another 7750 but I don't really like crossfire (or SLI).

    Better scaling in production? There could be a lot of reasons, but I think they just want to have the competitive edge against NVIDIA.

    I was very close in getting the NVIDIA GeForce 560 compared to the Radeon HD 6870 when I was looking to buy a new graphics card in summer 2011 but the local computer stores here suddenly dropped the price of the Radeon HD 6870 and it was enough to automatically got me to get this card, the price for performance was a lot better than NVIDIA GeForce 560, sure it doesn't beat it in everything, but for the most part it's on par or best it.

    Companies know that many people rather save money if it means sacrificing a bit of performance for it.

    Only reason to hate them, is if you bought them early....and are now trying to get rid of them for some reason...

    HD7950 won't drop to $189.....that would make HD7700 series worthless..and would run off a lot of their customers like me that buy cards with the intention of selling them later as HD7950 dropping to $189 would put the HD7870 at around $125-$150......roughly 1/3 it's original selling price...

    No hope seeing that, or really the only case could be a shop who start liquid his stock the days the HD8950-8970 are released.
