Do you even know whyt hey dropped? Cards never drop like this. just look at how long the 8800GTX stayed beyond the $400 range. That is because there was no competition. ATI has finally come up with cards that can compete with Nvidia, thus the price drops. Call my fanboi but I will always take Nvidia over ATI. No I did not buy my GTX 260 at retail but I did buy my 9800GTX before the price drop and stepped up to the 260. Gotta love EVGA!

I paid retail for my GTX 260 - $399 (and yes, I'm getting money back from eVGA). Even today, they're not $200 so we're still waiting for "half price"! Want my suggestion? Don't hold your breath for this being anytime soon (sans the dreaded rebate).

If I had also contacted Newegg during the initial massive price drop, I would have made money on this ordeal ($399 - up to $100 from Newegg - $60 from eVGA). So maybe the lesson should be to buy with the price is unfairly high!?!
I haven't seen the price drop to $200, more like $300 or including VAT in the UK 180 which is what I paid for mine.

I think it at this price it is a steal TBH.
