GeForce 8000 Series Price Cuts

According to the graphics card makers, NVIDIA may be cutting prices across the board soon and advising some of their partners to keep their inventory low. GeForce 8800 Ultra should be receiving the biggest cut and price may fall to as low as US$599. 8800GTX and 8800 GTS prices may be lowered as well to better compete against the Radeon HD 2900XT. 8600GTS and 8600GT should receive some price cuts as well when HD 2600 and 2400 cards start to flood the market. It seems that NVIDIA is adopting the price cutting strategy to put down their competitor before they have any chance to recoup any market share.

Looking for an excuse to purchase an Nvidia 8000 series card? If these price-cuts become a reality then you have no excuse.

Planning to upgrade soon (next month really) and thinking C2D is the way to go, but am intrigued by the promise of cheap quad-cores in the not too distant future...

Will an e4300 hold it's ground with an 8800GTS and 2Gb pc6400 cas5? I get the feeling I should either get a 4300 now with a view to definitely going quad-core or I should get an e6600 now and keep it longer? Some overclocking is fine but it might be going in a mATX case so temperatures are all-important (which is another reasons quad core is scary!) :)

Also I gather the e4300 might not like Vista as much as the e6600 ... something to do with virtualisation?

thoughts on e4300 vs. e6600 in games? Would I even notice the faster cpu?

Depends on your motherboard and cooling tbh. The two allowing you should be able to run it 24/7 at about 3.5/3.6 GHz. Although I would say at this point it is worth spending a little extra and getting an E6400. I dont know what the current lot are like but a recent batch clocked like mad

I have a E4300 and a 8800GTS and it works flawless on every game i chuck at it, although i have overclocked the E4300 to 3.3ghz.

I get 999FSP in Warsow and 200fps on average in CS:Source with everything on full.
