Most probably nVidia will drop some prices when the R9 290X will be out, (and reviewed), if it will trounce the GTX780

I would love that - so i could pick up another GTX 780 for a good price..... even better if the price drops are good as I could even buy one (gtx 780) from a friend!

I feel dirty... but at 160$ with box and receipt for warranty, a 7950 boost for too good to pass by to replace my 560.

I would expect them to do what they have done every time AMD have released something or dropped their prices (officially) and to do something within 2 days either before or after the launch date.. I've no real doubts it's gonna take the sting out of the 290x.

I was expecting price drops on 760s and maybe 770s (that are refreshes) to counter the new (well refreshes) R7, R8 and R9-280x... no "fox" given...not even a buck off...instead they dropped the low to mid-range gaming cards (650s, 660s and other lowbies).

Nvidia, I love ya, but jeez you're full of yourself!
