GTX 280 for $399 / GTX 260 for $299
 
You may have already seen the GTX 280 going for $499 and the GTX 260 for $369 or even lower. I really think that the GTX 280 needs to go for $399 and the GTX 260 for $299. Nvidia could really take a bite out of AMD's HD 4870 sales with those prices, especially if a rebate is offered. Now we can see how much Nvidia has gouged its customers. I don't think the GTX 280 will get to $399 as the GPU and boards just cost too much to manufacture. AMD has really stepped up and helped the consumer.

The GTX 260 already is $299. I saw where Newegg was selling a MSI GTX 260 for $299 (straight, no rebate involved) and you could have paid that this past Friday-Saturday, but last I looked, they are out of stock of them (but still have this price showing).

Hey, this thread may be prophetic! Before long, I expect these to be the prices for both cards. Once the HD 4870 X2 launches, Nvidia will have no choice but to lower the price of its flagship card. Since the HD 4870 wins against the GTX 260 in most benchmarks, Nvidia will probably have to lower its prices on that card. Stay tuned!!!


THANK YOU AMD/ATI!!!!!!!!!!!!
