EDIT: This has since proven to not be a rumor, but is actual fact.

Default Re: Rumor: Nvidia Planning "Big Price Drops" for GTX 460 and 470 Cards

As always, the SEP is just a suggestion and youll likely find retail boards from our partners at multiple price points. We expect many standard boards to sell in the $180s-$190s, and OC boards to sell for $209+.

In addition to the GeForce GTX 460 1GB, wed also like to mention new pricing on the GeForce GTX 470. The SEP of this GPU is now $259.99. The GeForce GTX 470 offers more tessellation engines than GTX 460, making it ready for the most demanding DX11 games on the market today, and just as important, the games of tomorrow.

These new SEPs will be reflected at the e-tail level in the next couple of days.

AMD is currently positioning the $179.99 Radeon 6850 against the GeForce GTX 460 768MB, which currently has a SEP of $169.99. However, GTX 460 768MB boards can be found for as low as $159.99 online. As a result, we feel that the stock GeForce GTX 460 1GB will ultimately be the Radeon 6850s closest competitor.

Priced at $239.99, the Radeon 6870 will be competing with GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC boards running at speeds in excess of 800MHz graphics clock from our partners. And for a few dollars more, users may also consider the GeForce GTX 470...

The price adjustments we made are not temporary, and are reflective of an upcoming change in our product lineup...

I don't really play games much anymore but at those prices I am tempted to get a 460. How much better would it perform than the 896mb GTX 275 in my sig?

Well after looking at a few comparisons it doesn't look like it would be much of an upgrade to go to a 460. Like Bob told Pelosi on that cold winter night last November behind an old abandoned building... screw it.
