When we first checked the availability of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 260 and AMD's Radeon HD 4870 last week, we didn't find many models listed. The GTX 260 was especially scarce, with our search yielding no available models at all. We decided to have a second look today to see if the situation has improved.
As always, we limited our search to Newegg, TigerDirect, ZipZoomFly, and Buy.com. These are the four computer hardware e-tailers with the most reviews on both our price search engine and ResellerRatings.com, so they should be a good indication of general availability. We highlighted available models in green.
|HIS Hightech H487F512P||$309.99||N/A||$299.99||N/A|
|POWERCOLOR AX4870 512MD5-H||$309.99||N/A||N/A||N/A|
On the AMD front, the Radeon HD 4870 definitely seems more plentiful than last time, and average pricing has dropped from $309.99 to $307.18.
|MSI N260GTX-T2D896 OC||N/A||N/A||$399.99||N/A|
The most drastic change is on the Nvidia front, where the GeForce GTX 260 is now widely available at an average price almost $8 lower than Nvidia's suggested retail price.
