Default Geforce GTX 470 drops to 250

Geforce GTX 470 was doomed ever since Nvidia launched GTX 460 based on a new GF104 chip as the price performance ratio was great. If we go further back, GTX 470 was never a hot seller as the ones who have waited for Fermi always wanted the more expensive and yet faster GTX 480 and GTX 470 was always a second choice card. Today GTX 470 based on old and quite hot GF100 sells for just under 250 for Asus card, while most of these cards still sell for 275. The timing is great as now is the peak of back-to-school shopping spree.

Default

that's some good value right there, definitely the card to get if you want to upgrade your GFX from a last generation card (Geforce 2xx or Radeon 4xxx)
