[FUD] GTX 280 drops to $499

Not sure if this is posted but I think this is some more good news for nvidia fans.

GTX 260 to $399


"Nvidia was planning to launch the Geforce GTX 280 at $599 and the GTX 260 at $449, but now it looks like both cards will end up priced lower than it was originally planned.

The reason for this is simple, ATI will price its cards aggressively. The new suggested retail price might drop as low as $499 for the GTX 280 and $399 for the GTX 260. We were advised that some of these prices, especially the GTX 260, might go down further within a few weeks after the launch.

ATI's Radeon HD 4870 will again be cheaper than the GTX 260, and our sources believe that it can give it a run for its money. We will see about that, but at least the HD 4870 will end up cheaper to begin with. "

I agree. They get a lot of flak, but they tend to be right quite often. Now, they also write something on everything, so odds are in their favor, but still...

Hmmm...maybe $499 is a good deal for this card. Does anybody know how they will compare to the new ATI's?

No chance in hell.

That would make a GTX280 (Top end card) under £300 which wont happen considering the GX2 is still between 3 and £400.
