I'd say $200 is a good price, did a quick search and found a 2GB 6950 with triple slot direct cu 2 cooler for $230.

The price of the HD 6950 cards won't change one bit IMO. At least not initially.

The 'rumor' is that this is going to be a paper launch by AMD. Retail Availability wont be for 2-3 weeks afterwards...not to mention the price mark up over MSRP as demand outstrips supply.

Old generation cards usually maintain price for ~3-6 months post new release, as people Xfire and SLI up instead of investing on new tech.
