Default Price Drop?

Ok, as most of us know, NVIDIA has said that they will be releasing the 7900GTX in March, in other words, next month! Now, the question is, how much do you expect prices on the 7800GS/T/X to fall? Or any other NVIDIA card for that matter?

The reason I bring attention to this is because I'm building a new system, and well the lower the price the better! When the X1900 series cards came out the X1800XT dropped $90 on the LAUNCH day! Can we expect to see similar or greater price drops on the 7800 series cards?

I bet it will, that is how all products are. Once a company releases a product that outmasters it, its preceding one drops price.
