The article mentions two reasons for the price drop: First, the GTX 280 is not selling as well as Nvidia hoped. Second, ATI's new HD 4800 series is performing a lot better than Nvidia hoped. Both of these factors are likely to push the price of the GTX 200 series down even more.

Yeah, I'm waiting it out. I may even go with ATI for the first time in my gaming history (I missed the 5xxx series debacle as I didn't even have a computer for 2 years).

You're misinterpretting. He, like me,was not implying that you thought that the card had dropped to 90, but were implying that he strongly disagrees with your opinion that Nvidia planned to drop the prices as they just have.

There's probably an appropriate smiley somewhere.
