Wow, less than two hundred bucks, wish Best Buy had a franchise in my country http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Guess I´ll keep my trusty AIW9700 pro for now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

From what I understand the next generation of cards are due out in a few weeks so prices everywhere will start to drop. I have no idea what the "next generation" of cards are :-)

This in the US or Canada? I just bought mine from best buy for 299 after a 100 price drop. Maybe I can get that other 100 dollars back also.

NV40 from Nvidia and r420 from ATI (They're the GPU codes anyway not the retail model numbers).

Expect a healthy performance increase along the lines of when the 9700 pro was released.

Where ever you live if you trade in a used video card regardless of quality or manufacturer ATI will ship a 9800Pro for $199.

They`re the ATI R420 and Nvidia NV40 series.

From rummors in the web, apparently Nvidia will kick ATI´s rear end this round, we shall see soon.

I dont see 9800Pros getting much lower than that... maybe they will go for that price with no rebate when its all said and done. 9500Pros are still going for $199 right now. They may come down to about $175 or so.. but i dont see them getting much lower..at least not in the next 6-12 months. The XTs may come down to @ $350-$400 from thier high of $500 now but thats about it. $199 for a 9800 Pro is a good price.
