NVIDIA isn't dropping the price, the market is adjusting itself now that the card has been out for awhile. When ever a card hits the market, every etailer will be selling it at Suggested Retail Value. Then once etailers have it in stock for too long... They need to start moving cards out of inventory. So the Suggested Retail now becomes market price.
Prices are really based on consumer purchasing. Look at the Opterons, if you look at the price charts... The retail value has actually increased over the last month.

If people buy a lot of them... the price stays the same or goes up. If people aren't buying them, the price will go down... Supply and Demand...

etailer's buy most of their products in (Lot's or 100 to 1000)
Wholesale Price of a 7800GT is probably around $275 per unit.
So... the etailer has some room to play with pricing. Then you'll see crazy deals like (7800GT - $289.00 with free shipping & a $20 Mail in Rebate from the Manufacturer) The Manufacturer can't sell it's new card to the etailer until the etailer unloads it's inventory of the older model. So the Manufacturer must kick in an incentive... Mail in rebates are also a gimmick. 95% of rebates offered will never even be claimed....

Retail Sucks...

I've got a PSP and I'm not to impressed. Actually the only thing I use it for is accessing my desktop from anywhere in my house. I've Modded it so I can remotely access my PC and control it. It's great when you are on the crapper and want to do something on the PC.

Special Thanks to: http://www.i-hacked.com/content/view/195/62/

The games are ok. The movies are too expensive... It's got hundreds of mod possibilities and that's all i've really done with it....

Waste of money if you ask me for a few games and sky high priced movies.
