Does anyone think the 2900 will come down a tad in price right after this launch, or should I jump now as planned? I'm betting it won't drop by much if at all.

Predicting what AMD is going to do is getting increasingly difficult lately, but given their current financial situation and need to generate some revenue, I suspect AMD will drop the price some even though the 2900XT is competitive with the 8800 GTS at similar price points.

I can imagine them dropping $20.-30.
