The GTX 750 hasn't even hit those prices. You'll be waiting awhile

It never worked like that, they simply go out of stock. The prices don't drop beyond a reasonable point. It's been this way for decades.

Would you have any rough estimates of what those prices might be? For example, what price the GTX 1070 will drop to and when it'll reach that price, before it drops any further? Also, if you knew how low the MSRP 6 GB GTX 1060 will drop from $299 once it releases, and when it'd reach that reasonable low, that'd be helpful, too. I know you're not psychic, but it sounds like you've had quite a bit more experience buying graphics cards than I do (working on my first PC build), so if you had any recommendations I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Just my 2 cents; The 1050 which will replace this card is still several months away, where as the 1060 will be released next tuesday. If you're looking for a good deal you're better off looking at the 960s which need to be cleared out. These 950s have been going for $100-110 on and off for months now. I actually picked up a GTX960 for $116 back in May.

A $116 960 is leaving out so much information. Brand new, not refurb? What brand? Evga has their step-up program which is a huge advantage. Also, advance RMA service which is another deal-maker. Also rebates vs $116 out the door is a big diff. There hasn't been a single $116 960 posted to SD ever. People looking for that should hunt used ones on Craigslist, as it's the only place you'll find that and it might be a less desirable model/brand.

I don't think the 950s will ever drop much more than they are now. ~$100, +/- $10 depending on the model. One day, they'll simply be out of stock with the 1050s coming in. This one is one of the best 950s (it is the best from Evga) and $110, I think there's no reason not to jump on it. Unlike the other 970+ cards it has full VP9 video acceleration which is going to be great for an older CPU.

You could wait for the 1050 in December, but if it's an older machine there's not much point. The 1050 gains H.265 Main12 support but the 950 has H.265 Main10 support already, which is pretty good- and unless this is going strictly into a HTPC, it might not matter to you.

The 1060 should be $250 in a couple months, September or so, when the dust settles. Completely out of the 950's league in price and performance. I don't see the 1060 dropping from $250 anytime soon being a 6GB card and having Geforce 980 performance levels. It's just a better card than the RX480.

Likely the 1050s will fill the $150-$200 bracket for the next year with 3GB/6GB versions available. I think it will be a long time until the 1050 drops to $100.

It's hard to tell exactly what will happen because we don't know how competitive AMD will be with NV but one thing I can assure you is that the 950 won't be dropping to $70. It'll just disappear from shelves as production has been stopped.

The 950 will never become the new ~$70 "750Ti" replacement on the market because the 1000 series was a node shrink and Nvidia/AMD will be completely replacing all the old cards with brand new models.

Yup my first "3D video card" (the original name for a GPU) was bought in 1996 and I've been buying video cards for about a decade prior to 1996 as well. I've never once seen cards drop infinitely in price, they simply empty the stock and bring in replacements, putting the price back up for another year or two.

1060 is the best card for my money at $250 in a few months. 1050 won't go below $150 in a very longtime. Nvidia has been trying to push prices up on all tiers for a while now. 950 is really a sweet spot card right now at $100 and decent performance, this one in particular should be a decent overclocker.

If you get a 950 at $90 new, no rebates, that would be the best deal you're ever going to see IMHO and I think that's a stretch. $100 +/- $10 with rebates like today's deals. But at $100 or $110 for one of the best 950s, I wouldn't personally sweat that $10-$20 "loss", because no guarantee it does hit that $90 mark.

Thanks. I was looking at a few other GTX 950s. One was $120 and another was the Asus mini for $104. This one seems like more overclocking potential. Ordered.

Yeah that Asus mini sucks. I saw that one too. This is the "high end" 950 and if the 1050 is released in the next 3 months you can Step-Up to it with this Evga if you want to.

Oh, I put my money where my mouth is too. I went in for 1. At $110 you really can't go wrong unless you are the cheapest bastard on the planet. I suppose what the other guy said is true that if you wait for Black Friday you might get in on some lucky sale if you catch them before they sell out and save $10 or maybe even $20 off this $110 price... but you gotta wait till November AND you're then 1 month away from the 1050's release.
For me that doesn't make any sense.

This deal looks to be dead. Am I wrong?
