Default When do price drops on video cards?

I'm just waiting for the 6800GT to drop to somewhere around $200. Will it be a year from now? When newer video cards come out?

Yes, usually when new ones come out, but also when they are overstocked and/or the company have to do their annual inventory they want to look good on their stock report.
