So, I see a few cards below MSRP on Newegg at the moment. There's a few cards between $529 and $539. Assuming a new MSRP of $479, will these cards fall below that, at around $459/469, or will they instead have the new MSRP applied to them?

That price is for stock / reference based cards only. Premiums will be applied for none reference / overclocked designs as usual.

Thats acceptable & actualy good for those whom want factory oc'ed/oc enhancmented componets mounted. Wasnt to long ago it use to be more $60-120+ for those cards.

Then you got the users like me whom buy stock & enjoy the preformance we get out of them like my recent Power Color Radeon 7870 which thru the CCC 12.3's is enjoying currently a nice 1.2 ghz gpu / 5.6 ghz ram clocks.

Honestly, I would prefer buying a HD 7970 Lightning at $520 over a reference GTX 680 at $500.

I don't see the lightning dropping $100 in the next few weeks, would sure boost sales though.

Ok. You can get a HD 7870 with these enhancements for about $20 or so. I am sure that the fans and such aren't that much different, if at all between the HD 7870 and the HD 7970!!!
