intel cpus hardly ever deprieciate in price, if newegg still had Pentium 4 EE's in stock from 2004 they would cost $999 easilySo......in two years what? X970 at $700 and X950 at $600?
The way i understand gpu pricing is this:
Highend 300 - 500 (4870, 5850, 5870, 6970, GTX570, GTX260, GTX280, GTX480, GTX470, X850, X1900XT, X1800XT, 7800GTX, 6800ultra, 9800XT, 8800GTX, 8800GTS)
Midrange 180 - 250 (3850, 3870, 4850, 5770, 6850, 6870, gtx 560ti, gtx 560, gtx 460, 6800GS, 5700ultra, X700, 9600XT, 7600GT, X1900GTO, 8800GT, 9500pro)
Lowend 80 - 150 (...)
Right now there is a gigantic hole in the 150 - 250 range, which for the most people is the sweet spot($200 to be exact). 7870 should have started at the most, at 300 and that is still expensive but understandable for a new product and all the inflation and stuff...
.....and 7950 at 350. I have no doubt they will go down in price once nvidia put its shit together and have a complete lineup and good supply of new generation chips, BUT, i pretty much doubt 7950 will ever go down to $260 like the 6950 2GB, because the starting price is so sky high. Just like the 7870 will never be as low as the $155 HD 6870.
