Can prices of HD 6950 drop further?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I wanna know if theres potential for a cut in hd 6950 prices. Im asking this cos when I bought my 5750 eeons ago I though Id got a good deal,but just a few months after that the prices dropped by like 25% .. And no, 6xxx hadnt been released yet.. So, will the prices come down? If so, when might that be?

They'll come down eventually, probably shortly before 7xxx or something comparative in price/performance launches.

Probably won't drop much all summer. Just get one and enjoy it! 7xxx is still quite a ways away...

Prices on cards eventually come down when the new series comes out on the market. They will come down only when the newer line starts to out sell the older one in volume. Even then they don't come down that much because retailers sell them in bulk to companies who build pre-fabricated computers who seek out older components at a less expensive price. Those companies are usually competing with other pre-fabricated computer companies for best prices as well.

If your thinking of buying a card go for it, you won't see price drops until a few months after the new lines trickle out in November , December 2011 and January 2012.

with the price of motherboards going up due to the price of materials I would not think the price of video cards would drop much if at all.
