hey im looking to buy a 7800gt just before they get discontinued so i can get get a great and cheap card when will it be happning and any idears of the price drop the cheapest one i have found is Â£190 / $315 im hoping to spend about Â£150
i really cant imagine that they discontinue the 7800gt. If they already havent they should rather stop with the Geforce 6600 series, they are in far lesser demand, and the GT's arent the best "bang for the buck" anymore. Its actually the 7800gt that is that now, why would they discontinue it then?
EDIT: if theyre getting cheaper i would suggest that everyone who has a 7800gt and another PCI-e slot, buy them cheaply so you get SLI
Crapolla... is that why the egg had them on sale last month???
Exactly. They are pushing inventory off of their warehouse shelves. Remember nVidia is in the business to make money. Not to please everyone (although it helps their reputation if they do). So they'll do whatever makes sense for them fiscally.
Think about it, 7900GT will be alot faster and only a little more than 7800GT was so they could either cut the 7800GT's prices by like $100 or more which is what you all would want lol but that would cut into sales of the 6800 and 6600 series which they are also trying to get rid of so they dont want to do that. 7900GT is supposed to have an MSRP of $399 at launch I think so thats not that much more than the $315 you stated for a 7800GT (USD)
lol i cant say anything im stuck in the position where i dont get alot of money i earn about £68 month not spending a penny so i cant be buying somthing that will last 1 year i hope to get at least 3 years out of a card im thinking of just wating with the crappy card i have know miby and get a dx10 card or buy a 6800gs /7800gt if the price is right and yous that for 3 years and then do the same
