Default Is a price drop for the 7900GT expected by around June?

Will the price drop by the time June rolls around?

right, video cards see the most dramatic price drop when new cards roll in.

prices always seem to drop with the next series of cards, 6 series cards dropped down when the 7's came out, so the 7's will drop when the 8's come out

Not really.

When serie 7 comes, the price of serie 6 didnt come down a lot. Because serie 6 is still strong at the moment.

Then i suspect the same will hlod true when seire 8 comes. Serice 7 price will go down, but not an awful low.

well the 7900gt/gtx isn't a new series its an addition to the 7*** series. i would expect a price drop by next month/may in the 7800 series

Doesn't matter...they are already cheap. I just bought the 7900gt from Tiger and it was $322 shipped Fl to CA. 24 pipes and stock 550/1500. should scream for not alot of money and XfX ships the drivers to include Coolbits....guess they are saying OC the card. I don't get this card until 3/22/06 but I'll bet it will approach the stock 7900GTX speeds for $300 when OC'd!
