they should come down soon, after ati releases their dx10 card(s?) Don't know when it will happen, but I'd guess during the next 2 months.

ATi is slated for a March-May release of the R600, around that time, there should be a G80 refresh with GDDR4 causing the G80 GDDR3 varients to come down in price

Isn't ATI releasing other R series? All I know is that they'll kick the R500's main place.

And...There's much more potential for that card...but, again, it's 250W of consumption.

You'll see the 8800 series video card come down in price when the market is saturated once again. Meaning a demand on the video card has been met or new chipsets coming out (including the competition which is ATi). With the way things are going for video cards, you should see a price reduction in a month or two.

That's good news. The 8800 cards are hot. If you ever need the top of the line 8800 series video card, get the XFX 8800GTX!!!! It's around $600 right now, but it's the fastest video card to date and the physics processing is an added plus on the 8 series chipsets.
