Big Price Drops on NVIDIA Cards Coming

Word on the street is that NVIDIA is changing UMAP pricing on the GTX 460 1GB and the GTX 470 for the better, from the consumers perspective anyway. Expect to see some fairly big price drops in the next couple of days that will bring both the cards down to previously unheard of prices. The drops on the GTX 470 will turn it into what will likely be a very well received enthusiast "sweetspot" card. The 460 looks like it will likely not fare so well on the "value meter" after Friday morning though and just how far it will fall from greatness will certainly be balanced out with how low its price goes. Bottom Line: The GTX 460 1GB and 470 are going to be getting cheap this week.
