I agree, we won't see a GTX 480 @ $300 retail, but based on the performance of the 68x0 cards and the GTX 580, it's not inconceivable that we'll see a card with very comparable performance for $300-350.

Depending on when the 69xx cards are released and when/if there'll be 560 and/or 570 cards, it might be a bad idea to buy a 480 @ $400 retail.

If there's enough 480 inventory floating around, it's not hard to imagine some sales close to $350 as we approach xmas.
