I posted this q a few weeks back. Doesn't look like Nvidia is going to change the pricing much to the 9800GTX or 8800GTS with the release of the new high-end cards. The 8800GTX is able to compete with the 9800GTX, 8800GTS at higher AA settings or at 1650 and above. So I guess around 180-200 is a very fair price for a still powerful card!!!!

WRONG. I mean I beg to differ. The 9800GTX new MSRP is $199. Work back from there.

Yea now that the 4850/4870 is out and are clearly great cards pushing nvidia into a midrange hole their, and most of nvidias lineup, value has dropped

I'd say about 150 shipped is fair. When you OC them with aftermarket cooling they really scale well though.
