bit-tech noticed a drop in the price of the GTX260 actually hitting retailers, as opposed to just being something we are still waiting for.  In some cases the GTX260s are down to the $230 range, putting them at the same price point as the HD4870.  It looks like the big difference between the two now is better Folding@Home, PhysX and SLI versus better video encoding/decoding, free software and Crossfire support.

“We have been hearing various rumbles about an impending price drop on Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 260 216 variant for a few weeks now and finally we’re starting to see that come into effect in the channel. If you could post a link on your site that would be very much appreciated.”
