Even with that they are both still fairly overpriced vs the ATI cards. I dunno if they will be able to lower them too much more, they have to be expensive to make with those massive dies.

Nvidia messed up this round. Nothing they can do but try to get whatever they can out of it =\

The Radeon HD4870 when overclocked rivals the GTX 280 and the HD4870X2 (rumored to be $499) will dominate it...

I am not sure it was so much nVidia messed up as ATI has actually got a card that is offering real competition to nVidia for the first time in ages making there actually be a choice to be made.

Past few generations have resoundingly been won by nVidia, this time it looks like pending tweaks to beta/early release drivers ATI has a victory by at least right now a small but still significant margin.

Dave - For one glad to see competition back in the video card market.... Star
