I cant believe a GTX260 still goes for $170 AFTER REBATE while 4870 1gb are going for $125 after rebate. Thats insane, what is Nvidia smoking over there?
EDIT: found some GTX260 for $150 after rebate, still too high considering the 4870 1GB is a better card.
Why does that shock you?
Nvidia will ALWAYS have the more expensive card, regardless of the competitions price or performance.
