The 8800GT came out at $300 or so, it was only dropped down as low as it has been because of the HD3870 infringing on its performance territory. The 9600GT would have also been closer to $200-$250 if the HD3k series didn't drop in price fast, forcing Nvidia to compete at that level rather than where they wanted. Nvidia may be arrogant and a bit lazy, but they're not stupid. The 9800GTX+ is a good move, it's given me pause on my graphics upgrade.
