Default Re: So they're out. What will U DO?

I posted in the other like thread,kinda like this one,about how the 4870 will possibly put pressure on Nvidia to drop prices soon.Now its obvious Nvidia will have to drop pricing.

I dont think they are worth the current MSRP.Not the 280 or the 260.The 260 is IMHO 50$ too much,and the 280 about 100 to 150 too much,given thier performance relative to the competetion.

Now given all that,I will stiill buy a 260 in the next month or two.Maybe even a 280 if I can snag it for ~500 usd,new.

Which is what I think it should be selling for @ stock clocks.I did not think AMD would this incredibly aggressive with pricing ! The 4870 should be selling for 399+ given its incredible performance.

I will never have any interest in SLI/CF,so whatever is fastest and @ 500 USD,in 30 to 60 days.I am also looking forward to the increase in folding output the NEW card will give me.

I currently have 4 systems folding for team Whoopass !
