100 dollars is a lot off considering it's been out for only a month.

maybe that's at that price to compete with tigerdirect's 549.99 after rebates? I didn't take to noticing if it was a sale or permanent price. I know TD's is a rebate deduction. Whoo hoo. mail in rebates... *grunts*...

This is not new. Last month, dell had the BFG card for 491. This isn't a price drop at all. Also, you can get a 7800GTX for I think 500 dollars with BF2 somewhere.

Ok hacp I'm getting tired of looking at this in your sig:

It says 68000GT when it needs to be 6800GT.

Finally had to say it :|
