Just a guestimate from the 7800GT and 6800GS when they came out. Of course its not gonna sale price like the ones that have been out a while. You have to remember that it will be a new 7800 card despite AGP. Thats why im guessing it will be that price and then drop to a little about 6800GS price.

Seems like the pre-launch price is around $350...

Here's a story on tgdaily.com

Quote:
Albatron launches GeForce 7300GS graphics card

Albatron today announced the availability of its latest graphics card offering, the GeForce 7300GS based on the Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS graphics processing unit (GPU). Although this comes on the heels of announcements for similar products launched by three of Albatron's competitors, no price has yet been announced.

The current 7300 GS offerings from Walton Chaintech, Micro-Star International (MSI) and XFX have varying levels of memory (256MB or 512MB) and are priced from $81 to $110.
They cite their source as:
http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20060126PR209.html

Yes, these are PCI-E versions, but on theinquirer.net

Quote:
Fifyfive per cent of channel market remains AGP

But 100 per cent of SI/OEM market is PCIe

THE UPGRADE market remains very strong. Just fancy that, journos are only talking about PCIe variations of motherboards and cards while over 55 per cent of the channel market is still AGP.

That’s why Nvidia and ATI are working hard to bring their new AGP based cards out. ATI has X1300 PRO and X1600 PRO out while Nvidia has many SKUs including the very successful Geforce 6600 vanilla and GT and the soon to come 7800 GS AGP. I smell a 7300 AGP in the offing soon, as well...

The 7800GS is supposed to be AGP only. I think the chances of unlocking the pipes will be slim to none now if they release it on PCI-E as well.

BS buddy. This thing not only has 4 more pipes, and higher clock speeds but it also has the full advantage of having a G70 GPU.

Everything in the 7800GS is a complete step up from the 6800GS.
