Hopefully this will mean the GTX380 (or whatever they will call it) will be walllet friendly for me too. I'm too used to SLi power now so i just have to buy two

The price of the 9800 GTX is now just under £100.

The 280(s) are selling from £315, for around 600mhz, to £385, for about 670mhz. Tho the different manufacturers are scaling differently through their ranges.

It was said well b4 the cards came out that the £435 or so would drop by £50 or so as quick as a few weeks after release.

The slower clocked cards are cheaper, but I don`t see anything different than was previously planned.

in the states, multiple manufacturers are now selling the gtx280 for less than $500. in fact, msi has one overclocked to 650 mhz thats going for $499 on newegg right now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127360

the ati stuff is impressive, but im still going nvidia. too many friends have had too many problems with games not jiving with their crossfire setup.
