How will the release of DX10 (i.e. 8800) affect the current prices of graphics cards? I'm hoping to get a card right now that's around 120-140, do you think that price will drop to about 100?

Well the 8800GTX is debuting at $650 in November. By Feburary it'll probably be $500 and by next summer it will be like $300 when the 9800GTX comes out. If you don't want to spend $700 for a DX10 card then just get a nice DX9 card for now and then wait til '07 for some midrange DX10s or wait for the G80 or R600 prices to drop.

The basics to all costs is Demands=Costs. No, if you are thinking Demand to Supply is the rule, you are wrong. Regardless to supply, if the demand is great, hell...might as well bump up the price. DX10 is new...brand new...not even out yet...enough of the dot dot dots. Therefore the "price" of DX10 cards will be extremely high during release. This form of pricing is common to all new technologies weither it be electronics, software, shoes, cars, etc etc. Always always figure a new tech to be expensive and the previous tech to drop due to the shift of demand to the new tech. Simple, no? This is ALWAYS TRUE. Prove me wrong...I dare you.<br><br>

That's cheap compared to how much the 7950GX2 was when it was released, I remember seeing some prices on newegg the first day it came out hovering around the $1000 mark. And $650 on release for a DX10 card? That seems pretty darn cheap if you ask me.<br><br>
