For those of you that havent seen this yet, NVIDIA is slashing GTX 260 and GTX 280 prices to counter AMDs latest offerings. One thing is for sure, the upcoming ATi HD 4870 X2 cards will keep the pressure on the green team both performance and price wise.
Nvidia said Sunday night that the GeForce GTX 280 is now available for $499 and the GTX 260 for $299. The high-end GTX 280 was originally $649, while the 260 was priced previously at $399. Both products were rolled out less than a month ago. Nvidia's graphics boards are now more in line with ATI's newest offerings. At $299, the GTX 260 price now matches that of ATI's comparable HD 4870.
