EVGA keeps the suggested GTX 580 price

Written by Slobodan Simic

Only one at US $499.99

It looks like that the retail/e-tail shops decided to pump up the GTX 580 prices and take advantage of the hype, but if you are lucky you might manage to score a reference GTX 580 priced at suggested retail price of US $499.99.

We already heard the US $499.99 price a couple of times before the launch and it was expected that retail/e-tail shops follow this to the letter, but for now the only card with this price comes from EVGA and only if you buy it directly on their web site. Although some might find it a bit too steep it is still better than the US $559.99 price tag at Newegg.com. It is possible that the prices might go down in next couple of days, but do bear in mind that it could also go up if the demand is high, after all, this depends on retail/e-tail shops.

The EVGA GTX 580 reference card can be found here and it looks like it is still available.

500$ for 580 is a very good deal but you can now also buy 5970 with 400-450$ (Its a bit hard to believe!).

Where did you find 5970 for $400? I'd snatch it!

Newegg just had a few for $420, but they sold out. Check in a few days.

In any case, this is good so there is finally a price war since both AMD HD 6xx0 and NVIDIA GTX 5x0 parts are on time and fairly matched in performance.

Newegg got the HD5970 back in stock for only $469.99. Can you say price war.

It takes a partner to make up for what nvidia didn't do the past year, i.e. not screwing over the customers.

I find it amazing that EVGA, one of the most respected companies in the field, and one which usually charges a premium for it's above-competition products, delivers to its users at the suggested price. Just WOW!

You wouldn't see nvidia ever doing that... that is price Fermi in line with its shit performance. The screwing-customers business is not one I would stay long it if I were them, it's destined to fail at some point.

Hi Guys,

I was came across a website that 'tracked' the prices of computer compounds over the weeks and months so you could really see if you were getting a good deal at that time or if something had gone up in price and its best to wait as it will come back down etc.

Anyone any idea what that site was?

Thanks

Average price on newegg is around $560 and cheapest is $549. So much for nvidia's MSRP.

To see a graph of price history try streetprices.com

pricewatch.com used to do a similar thing, but they seem to have stopped a few years ago (or I can't figure out where it's hidden in that website).
