Default NV30 only $400 retail...

Looks as though we have a price-war looming on the horizon...

If NVIDIA can match ATI's pricepoint for the 9700, what reason would the consumer have for not buying the newer ( and potentially faster ) NV30-based card?

I think ATI will drop the price once the NV is out in retail. The keep the 8500s price a but high until the GF4 Ti4200 came out. Then the lowered it to undercut nV. I bet they will do the same here...

Reminds me of a slightly OT story. I live in the Detroit area and this past spring the announced extremely large price increases for Tigers (baseball) game tickets. There was a large outcry by the fans (partly because the Tigers suck) about the price increase. So then they dropped the prices back down to cheap levels and a ran an ad campaign that they were "responding to the will of the fans."

<conspiracy theory on> Who thinks this might have been a marketing ploy? </conspiracy theory off>

Now, why can't they just "respond to the will of the fans" and get a decent baseball team?

BTW: This reminds of of graphics cards just with the GF3 price drop thing that occured.

What I meant was that at gf3 launch nvidia stated a 600$ recomended price but after a while the price changed to 399$ if I remember correctly!!
