Making it easier to sell

Geforce GTX 280 and GTX 260 are dropping down to a more acceptable price tags and it looks that this won't be the only price adjustment.


Our sources believes that GT200 series is just the beginning and that such a price drop will bring Geforce 9800GTX further down and possibly affect some slower products.

Geforce 9800GTX is also having a hard time selling as Radeon HD 4850 is selling for less and it performs the same or very similar. Currently, the cheapest Geforce 9800 GTX is selling for around €199 while the cheapest Radeon HD 4850 sells for €138. The gap simply needs to get smaller in order to sell Nvidia.

Even with the price drops, I think my next rig will be a full AMD/ATi setup. I can still handle everything for now.

Sorry forgot to put [Fud] in the title, anyway I can change that?

Right now absolutely, I'm not going to be building a rig till the end of the year or probably not until around this time next year...maybe, the itch to build something new grows stronger everyday. The AMD Mobo's just keep getting better and better though and I think a breakthrough with AMD is around the corner for some reason.

Well said. I had a Q6600 PC before but I prefer the Phenom a lot more.

Why do they compare EU prices? Pricing in most EU countries is horrible and nowhere indicates recommended manufacturer price point. According to Newegg price difference is rather small (10-20$) and not 60+€
