I know Black Friday is done and over, but will Newegg have anymore sales? I am going to buy a hd6850 before Christmas and was wondering if the prices will lower. Will they?
It is eventual that the price will lower at some point.
What you are doing is regarding the value standpoint of a product while you have to incorporate the length of lifetime this product will last you for.
If you can afford it and envision this card to last you for X amount of time you find appropriate for the price then go for it.
Otherwise what will happen is, the manufacturer will come up with another mroe brillant card which means the card you look at will be lower in price but the amunt of time you will have the lower product will continue to decrease; therefore cost effectiveness is a good thing to look at but not necessarily the only solution to look at
