Default Next big price drop?

Im not really sure if this is the right place for this topic but I was wondering when some new, "revolutionary" hardware will come out and bring down prices of current hardware significantly. Thanks.

When ATI and Nvidia come out with their new series of video cards prices on current video cards should drop.

You'll have to wait for months, but when pci exprees comes out it will lower prices on all pci and AGP cards.

Also, the current ATX motherboard's prices will be lowered when motherboards that utilize pci express,known as BTX motherboards come out.

We're always waiting for the next big thing but they're right. In this case there are a lot of big changes coming around this summer or at least before Christmass
