    $400 for the GeforceFx 5800
    $500 for the GeforceFx 5800 ultra

    I agree. Waaaaaaaaay too much for a video card. I'm currently in the market for a card and I'll probably be going with either a Ti4200 or Ti4400.

    When games become available that need a card like the GeForceFX, it will be MUCH cheaper to buy a GeForceFX.

    The GeForce 2 Ultra was not mentioned in the presentation, and no prices have been announced.

    Why would anyone listen to the Inqwell? They're wrong at least 80% of the time!

    Anandtech reported the FX to be around $360. Sounds pretty reasonable (and expected) to me if you're talking the best money can buy for consumer graphics cards.

    While I do enjoy the improvement the Ti4600 has made with my games, I don't see any games in the near future that could make necessary a $500 upgrade.

    I think I'll be using my Matrox Parhelia for quite a while....

    I bought my 256 Geforce DDR for $300 when it came out. It only feels like yesterday...

    Now my card can't even play UT2 or even War3 without a little lag.

    Until there is an actual press release from Nvidia I don't believe what anyone else states, especially when they say $500.
