Yeah, well the reason NVIDIA did it certainly made sense and actually worked. Who would buy a 9600XT over a 5900XT? Apart from only the most DIEHARD ATI fan on the tightest of budgets...
That said i was noticing a gap appearing on some sites, the 5900XT selling for about £150 and the 5700 Ultra selling for £105... if the 5700 Ultra made it down to £80-£90 then it might actually look good, but that would then make the 5600 and 5200 look even worse lol. It looks like NVIDIA have too many product lines and they are over-laping each other and making some of them obselete.
btw i approve of the avatar there hehe, DOA girls eh
