    According to Fudzilla.com, nVidia will drop the price for the gtx280 and gtx260.

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    Anybody not see this coming? Honestly I'm surprised they aren't cutting deeper. The hammers gonna fall soon with the 4870x2.

    I think this is already in effect in the uk. You can pick up a Inno3D GTX260 for £250 and a GTX280 from ASUS for £393 or the shop im looking at is just really cheap.

    Just poked around on newegg and found this:

    GTX 260 for $330

    That's actually looking like a good deal.

    PNY was always a bit cheaper but looking good so far!
    260 might be a good deal if nVidia can drop it's price down to 300$, tho 4870 is going around with that price already.

    They have to cut their prices even more than that, imo.

    Still way too expensive.

    nVidia doesn't even get close to the magnificent value of the 4000 series.

    That will be difficult, considering the sheer volume of silicon in a GT200 core. I really don't think any huge price cut will come until they can die-shrink the core, increasing their chip output per wafer.

    :) that's nice to know

    Going to agree with Don here and say the price still needs to come down some since the 4870 is beating the 260 on the charts. It is still starting to look like a good deal though. At least compared to the lol400$ launch price.

    Having said that, nvidia has spent my goodwill I'll be going with ATI for my next build. 2 years of 8800 dominance and still no die shrink on these new cards even though they have the 55nm tech already?
