    NVIDIA is preparing to launch a series of GeForce 8600 cards in the middled of the second quarter 2007 to help satisfy the increasing demand for DirectX 10 supporting graphics cards caused by Windows Vista. According to the release plan several versions priced to target mainstream markets are currently being prepared. The GeForce 8600 GT with 512MB memory will be priced between US$219 and US$229, while a 256MB version will be available at US$199. Additionally, targeting an even lower price point will be the GeForce 8600GS at between US$159 and US$165, according to DigiTimes. DirectX 10 graphics cards will be the main focus for both NVIDIA and AMD-ATI at the upcoming CeBIT trade show to be held from March 15 to 21, 2007. That's also the date when the above mentioned cards from NVIDIA are expected to be shown alongside the company's already released GeForce 8800 series.

    I agree, it should drop. Of course, I cant wait for the R600 and the subsequent price drops of them.

    *Coughs* Whoever posted on news that the 8900GS would be budget/midrange better correct that.
