Default NVIDIA Geforce GTX 470 to cost 349

We managed to get some additional prices of upcoming Fermi-based cards and the slower of two will sell for 349 or 299 in the UK market. The plan is to attack the Radeon HD 5870, which is currently selling at roughly the same or a very similar price, as Geforce GTX 470 should end up at least slightly faster in most benchmarks.

from what I've seen GTX 470 matches HD 5870 at resolution/AA settings where memory size becomes the limiting factor, 2560x1600 with 4-8xAA, FPS are below 20fps and hardly playable.

I think at playable settings the 5870 will outperform the GTX 470. So price has to come down of the NVIDIA card.
