Default Gigabyte 280 GTX @ $460 shipped

$449.99 + $10 shipping. No MIR!!!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125200

Best price I've seen so far so I picked one up. That's about a $100 bucks less than the 4870X2's "supposed" price next month.

That is a NICE price on the 280, and getting closer to the $399 price at which I'd be tempted if it wasn't for all of the reports of the overheating and the 55nm replacement part on the way soon...

Also, looks like Gigabyte is leading the 'lowest price' charge!

They have their GTX 260 up at the egg for $299 with no rebate hassles:

God bless AMD/ATI for the competition! Otherwise the 280 would still be at $650!!

The official price drop was to $499 so I don't think you'll see $400 280s until the 55nm parts either come out or are right around the corner. And when the 55nm parts do come out you can bet they won't be cheap. IE, pay $600 for a 55nm 280 or $400 for the older 65nm card.

I like $450 today and dumping it for a minimal loss ($50 - $100) in a month or two if something significantly better comes out. This plan would not have worked @ the old $650 price point......

That's likely the route I'm going to take. Right now, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of the 280, wait until September when my $160 rebate comes from MS, and assess where the video card wars are at that point. If (and that's a big if) AMD has some decent drivers out at that point, I will seriously consider the 4870X2. Otherwise, the 280 will stay until the next big thing rolls around.

Things are really getting interesting now.

I'm still crossing my fingers for a $400 55nm 1Gb GTX200 card.

Hmm, I think that's far from a sure bet...

I picked up my 9800GX2 for $530 on 4/15 and to dump it just 3 months later I'd be looking at getting $300 which is a $230 loss in just 3 months... And $530 was quite a deal at the time for that card.

Granted the 8800GTX held a good price for a long time but we seem to be in a period of rapid change due to competition again so it's quite possible the 65nm 280 GTX will lose value more rapidly, especially if the heat issues become more widespread or publicized.

For now I plan on sitting off to the sidelines enjoying my 9800GX2 until things stabilize a bit and see where things are at closer to the end of this year. Heck, besides Crysis (which I don't play much) I really don't have any other games even stressing my GX2 at the moment to justify an upgrade.

Now is not time to start chasing the fastest card every time a new one comes out, that much is for certain. It's time to sit back and enjoy your current card and watch prices fall through the floor.

Funny i see people bashing ATi's drivers granted the last video card from ATi i had was the X800XL which i had been recently using when my 8800GTX died but never had any problems infact i could even watch divx fils on my nF 750i without it freezing and crashing the computer. I think their drivers are in good shape although have yet to try their crossfire. But when crossfire works it scales amazingly, still see no real crossfire support in crysis yet At least ATi are able to get WHQL drivers out every month unlike nVidia which might have one every 3 months and lots of beta drivers, makes me feel more like a beta tester for their hardware.

Nothing's a sure bet, but I seriously doubt the high-end card Nvidia launched @ $650 last month is going to be selling for under $300 in Aug./Sept. unless AMD sells the 4870x2 for $400 instead of the reported $550.

And GX2 cards = reamed. It's the second time Nvidia launches one a few months before their new high-end single GPU. Of course they aren't going to hold their value well. Now look at the 6800, 7800, 7900, & 8800 - if purchased a month or two after launch they offered a tremendous gaming value since you didn't get screwed on the initial pricing and you could of sold them anytime during your first year of ownership and still got back 80%+ of your original purchase price. I purchased a 8800 GTS 640 in Jan. of last year for $380 and sold it in Feb. of this year for $330.

Not even the infamous dustbuster lost half it's value in three months. And the 5900 was a bigger jump over the 5800 than whatever Nvidia does with their 55nm 280 compared to the 65nm part. That is, unless you expect this part to offer a 512 bit bus on GDDR5 + 30% higher clocks on the GPU for ~$500 in Sept.

Can't see Nvidia pricing anything at the $600 range for quite a while. Otherwise people will just laugh and buy amd cards.
