Now that the Radeon 7000 series graphic cards are out (only the 7970 for now) we are all left to wonder when the 6000 series cards are going to drop in price.
Do you think the 6000 series graphics cards are going to drop in price anytime soon?

My theory is, is that the price will remain the same so that people will buy the newer cards, I think the only chance that the prices will drop is if Nvidia drops their prices on the 500 series to help keep them competitive until they release the 600 series, which I doubt will happen but you never know

I think they will drop the prices a few weeks after the 7800 and all of the 7900 series come out which could be a month or two. :bounce:

Sounds pretty logical, it would be worth waiting to get a 6870 if that's the case, maybe even a 6950

The prices will drop so they fire burn through their older stock faster but that will have a downside that making the cards rare. However being a hawk on the second hand market one can land some high quality samples for nickles from people who are upgrading.

Prices drops yes but expect rarity of certain desirable models.
