More specifically when will nVIDIA cards lower their prices? I mean with the release of the GTX 680 I would expect the likes of some of the video cards like the GTX 560 Ti, GTX 570 and GTX 580 to drop a significant amount; or just at least the 560 Ti.

Reason is I'm planning on upgrading my system by adding a new Z77 ASUS Sabertooth, M1000 Silent Pro PSU and GTX 560 Ti (i already have one of these).
This will be done in a few months and just wondering if I could cut some costs. Or maybe sell the 560 ti and buy a 680?

P.S. I'm an nVIDIA fan so honestly I don't want a radeon card in my system, no offence :D

normally video cards don't drop prices, they will maintain the price close, and i think the maximum drop you will see is close to 90 bucks.

i am in the same question than you, i do have a 560 ti 1gb and was thinking myself the same, if i would go with the 680 or another 560 ti, well i have tested the SLI with another 560 ti borrowed, and the results are awesome, but the 680 benchmarks are even better and it will waste less energy and there will be no SLI incompatibilities (games that don't support, micro stuttering, driver issues, etc) so i think that justifies going with the 680, also 2gb is good for some games that are being bottlenecked because of the 1gb memory.

i will sell the 560 ti because i have a buyer already and i will wait one month and than go for the 680 probably, i think the prices will not drop down too soon and when they do it will not be much.

The reasons are:-
1)Most important,the dropped prices can only be earned whenever a new graphic cards hit the market so that their present cards can also sell with the newly launced cards.

2)Sometimes the vendors give a discount as they were not able to sell due to less demand of the particular cards.

3)Even sometimes you will get a graphics card at a reduced price by online retailers it just depends on your luck.

Hmmm... that's what I thought. Maybe with some luck I will find a buyer and sell my 560 and get a new 680. :sol:
