the ATI prices went up after Nvidea brought out the Fermi based cards, so you know it was a marketing ploy, I would think down in a few months

Cheaper on ebay, and places like newegg won't have them in stock anymore. They'll probably go for $150 on eBay, the 4870 $120, and the 4850 $80. Basically they'll stay the same, because ATI's 5K equivalent is already near the same price.

Let me get out my crystal ball... Sorry, it's not working right now. :) 

Seriously, nobody can tell you for sure what prices are going to do in the future. The general trend, however, is that discontinued items go up in price because they aren't being manufactured any more. If you really want a previous generation card then you should probably buy it used. That being said, why not get a current generation 5xxx GPU instead?

Email Jorge Lorenzo and ask him to put it on his "Things to-do when I'm World Champion" list.

The best kind of war is the one that's kept on the track, and the one between Pedrosa and Lorenzo is one some of us have been waiting for and salivating over. Economics and other boring "normal" politics are not any concern for me. ;)
