Yesterday we reported that NVIDIA would very likely drop it's prices for the GeForce GTX 260 and 280 to bee able to compete with AMD's offering better. As it seems, that price drop is already in effect.
Newegg shows an offering on a GeForce GTX 280 graphics card for $459.99 after a $40 mail-in-rebate and cards from other brands like Asus and Palit are also available for around $499. It seems NVIDIA is cutting the price extremely hard. A couple of days ago you had to shelve out $649 for a GTX 280 but now you can get it for almost $200 less.
Furthermore, the GeForce GTX 260 is now available for $299.99 and ZipZoomfly even has one with a $40 mail-in-rebate so the card costs only $259.
We'll keep an eye on the new price developments closely. The fun thing here is, if you pick up such a card at that price, you'll just have to say thanks to AMD for it.
