Just after you buy one.

Yeah, when the next series of cards are released. ;)

ATI/AMD isn't offering any real competition in the high end segment, so I reckon nVidia feel they can take their sweet time.

Wow I figured the price would have dropped by now. Seems like it has been quite a while (february IIRC?) when I bought mine, and I paid $365 for it then (free shipping, tax free.) Yet it still commonly hovers around the $360 to $400 range.

:lol2: Isn't that the truth? It seems like the best time to have bought one this summer was right before ATI's 2900. Retailers were dropping the price in addition to the rebates it had. I guess in anticipation of R600 owning everything even though it didn't really... Between a $10 site coupon, the $30 rebate, and the price drops, I got my 8800 GTS 640 MB for $315 on Buy.com with free shipping and of course no tax. I really think the price is going to hover around $370 -rebates until December or whenever G90 is released.

I don't see price drops on highend cards. Hell look at the 6800Ultra, it still sellls for 500 bucks if you can find it. I mean the 512 version too.

Nvidia doesn't like doing this even with old cards. I was a 5900Ultra somewhere at pricewatch selling for 429 which is ****ty.
