    ATI has already started to cut pricing of the Radeon X1900 series cards: Radeon X1900 CrossFire, X1900XTX, X1900XT and X1900GT because of the approaching Radeon X1950 series debut on the 27th. Essentially, all of the ATI cards have shifted down a price tier, leaving the top $500 price tag open for the Radeon X1950. Here's a list of the average price changes over the last few days:
    • ATI Radeon X1900 512MB CrossFire: $375, down from $500
    • ATI Radeon X1900XTX 512MB: $370, down from $500
    • ATI Radeon X1900XT 512MB: $310, down from $370
    • ATI Radeon X1900GT 256MB: $280, down from $310
    • Sapphire Radeon X1900GT 256MB: $230, down from $250
    Sapphire and PowerColor will also set the new pricing before August 27th.

    well here in england before the price drop the X1900XT 512mb when released was about £370 / $705.079. then now its about £220 / $410. why does england always have to be more expensive than the US

    1900XTX is not worth it .. why dont you guys wait for the DirectX 10 cards

    1800XT or 7900GT = best bang for the bucks

    Nice.

    Personally I believe it is wort the $$$, but mainly as I enjoy shooting people in high resolution, with lower framerates. As opposed to 11111!!!!W00T framerates and low resolutions.
