Nice prices now. I think it puts all cards very close to where they should be. Competition always does wonders for pricing...too bad the CPU world lacks it.

Default What about the cheap stuff?

So, is AMD waiting for "Cheaper Keplers" to come out, to drop HD 7750s, or they already making hair-thin margins? Any "word" (or hint) when the actual Kepler GK107 cards are comming out?

Well, looks like the AMD's are finally competitive again. These are the price cuts I suspect a lot of people were waiting for.

Seems a little to little to late to me, most of the people I know that were waiting for cuts on high end AMD, now own 680's and are more then happy.
