Are there any indications that prices for older cards WILL drop a little?

    I have been monitoring a few resellers for months and those 5900's and 5950
    don't drop a cent.
    They are still very expensive where I live... 375 euro (approx. 460 US$) is
    considered a 'normal' price for a 5950 ultra.

    And where are the 5900 normals? Nowadays I can only find 5900XT's.

    I wanna play doom3 so I guess a 5900xt (= 5900 light) won't give me enough
    satisfaction :)

    Anyone know a Dutch reseller with something between 'low-budget' and 'for
    the extreme rich' ?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts..

    Waiting for the prices to drop more here in the UK too... 5950 Ultra would
    be nice, but its still too expensive for me.

    The prices won't drop through the floor because where would that leave all
    the new cards if everyone rushed to buy the much cheaper but still powerful

    They'd be outbidding themselves.

    I doubt that one, I spoke to my local dealer, and he had one 5950 and he
    cannot sell it even to the dogs, nobody wants them since for a tiny bit more
    one can choose a x800pro or 6800GT. I expect the 59x0's to leave the market
    vey soon.

    Maybe that's good.
    Right now there are so many choices. If you also count the upcoming 6600,
    you have so many series:
    5200, 5500, 5700, 5900, 5950 , 6600, 6800, also still the mx4000, several of
    them with multiple extension like LE, XT, GT, Ultra.
    No wonder everyone is asking questions in this group like 'what's best',
    'what do I need', ... hell, I want to go back in time so that I would just
    have to choose between light, normal or pro and that was it.

    Wow, I didn't expect that. Also a good comparison, at least all major cards
    are displayed.
    Thanks for the pointer
