No one can know for certain, but IMO, I don't think most of the current cards prices will drop a whole lot. My reasoning behind this comes from the high projected MSRP of the two new cards - the GTX280 @ $449 and GTX280 @ $649 (source
). Those prices are already considerably more than most nVidia cards ATM. You may see the 9800GX2 drop some, but I don't think the rest of the cards will see much price reduction. That's just a guess, though. I could be wrong.
PS: Depending on how ATI's new cards perform (and what they're priced at) in comparison to nVidia cards, that could drop nVidia's prices down as well. Exactly how much, no one can say.Edited by Choggs396 - 5/31/08 at 7:25pm
