Default Ideas when the 7 Gpus will drop in price?

Anyone know when the & series GPUs will drop in price? I'm looking at the 7900GS and I dont want to buy it now if it will drop in price in a month.

O, ok, I'll try and get the 7900GS soon, and sell it before a big price drop, and get an 8600 when it comes out or something. Because I want a DX10 card but dont want to pay more than $200 on ebay for it.

ok, but keep in mind, this is really all speculation on my part.

true, but I agree with you. nVidia is releasing their cheaper dx10 cards probably during Q1 so I guess the prices of dx9 cards will go down quite much.

around the same time, although.. not as drastically as the mid-lower end games cuz the 1950xtx will probably be able to handle the dx10 games that are released pretty well.
