The 768MB version compare to the 1GB is nowhere near eachother and most people are going for the 1GB versions. Since NVIDIA is already making profit from the 1GB version sells they lowered the 768MB price down to still get some more profit and to get people to buy the 768MB versions

Thats how I see it.

Uh. Id beg to differ, I think more 768's are being sold then 1 gigs. They are cheaper, the performance difference isn't that great, and the folding potential is almost zero between the two versions.

I know I personally dont care to spend an extra 15% (200 vs 230+) to get MAYBE 10% more FPS depending on resolution. (But then again, I'm only gaming at 16x10 anyways. )
