    I noticed that in the original 7950 thread OCuk said they would be dropping the price of one of their 7900gt's to 149.99 plus VAT.

    Anyone know when this will happen as I am currently hanging slack waiting to buy one

    They have dropped in price since they were released, but just not all at once. For example, i got my OCUK 7900GT for £217 on This Week Only a couple of months back, but now it can be bought for £187 :eek:

    Bargain tbh

    I can wait for a DX10 card :)
    I although, need to consider to upgrade my crappy 23ms lcd monitor! (Acer al1913 19")

    The OCUK made 19" widescreen 8ms looks kinda cool! And probably the most cheapest widescreen for its size/speed :)

    I've many a time had things I've bought drop like that in price. It gives me the price drop sickness.

    Agreed, Oblivion maxed out with 2xAA/16xAF+HDR at 1280x1024, very playable here on an x1800 XT 512mb. :)

    A Sapphire 1900XT just went 2nd hand on AVforums for £200 quid, due to the fact that OCUK are selling them this week for £252 inc.

    With that in mind, surely a price drop on the 7900GT must be in the offing, as it would be hard for it to compete otherwise.
