Im thinking about getting an ATi card and wanted to see if theres any
knowledge about any anticipated price drops now that the X800 and similar
new stuff is out.

Im in no hurry, so I can wait a few weeks or a month if I can expect to save
$50 off a $300 card

ATI aren't releasing any AGP cards to eclipse the X800 series just yet. The
R480, launching December 1st, will be PCI-E only at first.

I wouldn't expect any considerable price reductions until well into 2005.

The price for ATI cards should be lowest during the month before Christmas.
If ATI plans on releasing any new cards, they will not announce it until a
month after Christmas,
If ATI were to talk before Christmas about post Christmas releases, it might
stop people
from buying during the Christmas season, or they might return Christmas
purchases.
