Default NVIDIA Prefaces AMD's Radeon HD 6800 Launch with Price Drops

We're sure this will come as a surprise to no one, but with AMD's Radeon HD 6800 series debuting on Friday, NVIDIA has taken its stance by lowering the prices on both its GeForce GTX 460 and GTX 470 graphics cards. On the GTX 460 side of things, the cost of the 1GB models will now match the 768MB models, while the GTX 470 will drop down closer to the HD 6870's rumored price.
