Default You think the 4870 will drop in price soon?

When and by how much? My buddy tells me to wait a month or two and they will drop. But by how much would you think? They are around $300 right now. If they drop $50 then forget it I will do it now. If they drop to like $200 then I might wait.

What do you think?

Buy it during Black Friday, because that's when everybody goes crazy for electronics.
