i was hoping for a 8800GTS, but im not paying $500 for a video card. i'd rather just wait a couple months. i like nvidia, so i really hope they dont screw up and have ati undercut their price w/ a similar performance card. though i am torn now since im a fan of AMD and they're joined.

woe is me lol

Who said a GTS is going to cost that much?
no1 i know personally. but ive been looking around the web the past few days trying to find out as much info about the 8x00 series as i can since my 6800GT is getting long in the tooth and BF2142 is a little more than a week away (nana2)

saw it first in the comments of this Oct 5th article

just saw it again this morning in a beyond3d thread linked from the G80 specs revealed thread

personally i hope its not true. according to CPI inflation, $400 in 2002 is $420.25 now. if they stay at this rate of price increase the x600GT will start at $280 and that would be very bad.
