AMD woke up - Should see GT prices fall
With the release of AMD's HD3870/3850 cards that retail for between $180 - $220 we should hopefully see the prices for the 8800 GT come down to pre-launch published prices of around $200 - $250.

Here are the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...557&name=512MB
Remember I said the 8800 GT's prices SHOULD come down now that the competition has woken up...

How will these compare to the 8800GT cards? I see that the four 3870's at Newegg are all 256megs of 256 bit DDR3. 320 stream processors. How will it stack up?\m/ OverClockers mATX L33T Club \m/

Brollocks - Your Newegg link goes to the 3850's, not the 3870's. Here's a link for both!

Why should they lower the price when they have the faster card ?
Maybe they'll price the 256mb version aggressively, but I doubt much will happen with the regular GT.

Competition is always a good think to us consumers.

When is ATi going to get it together? They are still behind nVidia even in mid range cards. Looks like the 8800 GTX & Ultra will be champs for a while yet.][mmortal ]-[ero

Original OP doesn't make any sense. The prices are just high because of supply and demand. Demand might go down just a tad bit. With the 8800GT still faster than the 3870, a lot of places still have a large backorder for the 8800GT, and people generally wanting Nvidia more (basing it off the fact that they have greater market share) there should not be a big drop from the inflated prices. I would figure maybe a $10-$20 drop in a couple weeks.

I think the 38x0 series has it's niche, at $100 cheaper than the GT and much better performance than the 8600 series I think a lot of budget builders will use it.
