Default X1900 Price drops in April?

Hey there,

With Nvidia due to release their new schebang in March / April, can we expect a ATi price drop in order to counter their launch?

The reason why I ask is because I want to replace my X850 with one of these babies, but don't want to pay £350 for the pleasure...

Cheers.

Possible, but if the rumors about the 7900 series not being able to outperform the X1900 series are true, then I highly doubt it.

Prices on X1900 cards have already dropped by quite a bit. You just need to find them.

Expect to see the XT drop to the sub $450 range and the XTX at $500.

you can get a xtx for a price of xt at newegg for $499;
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125008

and yes, when nvidia releases their new card, ati will lower their prices.

for now, you just have to know where to look at to find lower prices.

Becouse they cant match the performance its being said that they will make thier cards cheaper then ATi's. I dunno if XT matches the performance of the GTX so ATi might want to match the price in that kind of situation. But either way as time goes on all prices have to slowly drop.

Also i note, last night i bought X19 XT from overclokers.co.uk and it cost me £348 today its @ £364, wierd i know... lucky i sure am.
