Price drops for 6950 or 6970?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm sort of in no man's land here. I need to study for a test coming up in June, so my gaming is really limited... although you know how hard it is not to game if you're a gamer.

It looks like I can grab a 6950 2gb for around 260AR. But these can be unlocked for now. The plan was to buy a card around June, but by then all the reference 6950 2gb cards will be gone. To make matters worse, if prices for 6970 don't drop by then, then I would be kicking myself for not buying earlier.

Anyone want to estimate prices by June?

If I recall correctly, the 5000 series prices dropped very slowly. So I wouldn't think they are going to be much cheaper (if any) by June considering that Nvidia already has their 500 series out along side it. The 6850 are actually at $245 after rebate right now so I imagine at the cheapest they will be ~$225 or so.
