    if you are looking to buy one of these the prices will be falling rapidly over the next few weeks

    nvidia's partners have taken their last orders of the 7800 cards, which are going to be replaced shortly.

    you can get a standard 7800gt for £190, and it will keep falling until stock runs out.

    Not necessarily

    With the GPU market advancing as it is they could simply be out of date now in Nvidia eyes anyway.

    lol don't bite my head off :p

    the price is going down because apparently the new cards will be faster and cheaper, and they are trying to clear stock and start afresh with the 7900s.
