Default Nvidia dropping prices on the 8800GTX !?!?!

I was checking my shopping cart to see if they were some price fluctuation and it appears that the 8800GTX just drop a couple of dollars and its very interesting because I have been looking the 8800GTX since May and the GTX price haven't drop 1 single dollar. I knew there was going to be a price drop but I didn;t know when could this be the price drop??

I asked this sometime ago but I can't find the post:

If I buy an 8800GTX around October and in November Nvidia release a new video card (9800) and it cost the same as the GTX right now can I use the Step Program and trade my 8800GTX for the 9800 without paying anything at all??

I think that few dollar flux is from the same algorithm that we talked about when the ram prices were brought up. When they have a price cut it will be big and it will be noticeable.
