Step up is a joke

Pre-order.

Haven't we all forgotten how no-name websites rip people off with their pre-order prices? For all we know this might be double the retail price once the card comes out. Fun thing is that there are actually people who pay this price, just to be the first.

Guys, why do you have to mention how much the 7900 GTX and 8800 Ultra cost on launch? We all know they where expensive, I paid quite a lot for my 7900 GTX, but those were different times (and the performance difference quite big especially the one between 8800 and 7900 series). Regardless of the economical situation in some countries right now there isn't much incentive for such a powerful card. Crysis has come and gone, and every other games runs very well on actual hardware.
I think that in the current situation looking for the best performance/cost ratio is the better choice.

Should wait a week or so. Let it settle down.

Age of Conan doesn't run very well . I want 200 fps in AoC not 2 seconds per frame-50fps. Idk why it does that. And no way in hell it'll cost 1000$ USD.

You people do realise this isn't Nvidia's (or card manufactureres) recommended retail price (RRP). This company has gone to the liberty of announcing a new card ahead of any other retailer and thus jacked their price up. They have a unique selling point, no competition and probably much demand.

Don't expect this to represent the final release price...

There is no point in doing a straight conversion from Euros to dollars to try and work out the price in america, it never works out like that.

People just look closely before making "OMG" statements.

It is a ****ing expensive EU shop. If some1 actually tried to check out rhis shop, he would notice that 9800GX2 goes for 544 euro thus making it cost ~77% more than in US retail sale. So this shop in nowhere near the source to compare prices. nVidia released their prices a while ago, so why would GTX 280 cost more than 650$ (which is a recommended price)? There might a slightly higher price for a couple of weeks due to new hardware hype, but in the end shops like Newegg will sell it recommended price, which may actually get cheaper in time or at least stay the same.

Egg-zactly.

ASUS 8800GTS at Newegg, $240.

Same card in Europe (same site even), $400.

Check out the screenshot from my invoice. Also, the release date for the 7900GTX was march 9th 2006, 2 months before i bought my card...



i doubt the card dropped $120 in the first 8 weeks. Might have dropped from $499. Far from the $600 price tag your suggesting.
