NVIDIA GT200 priced at $499?

FUD Zilla heard NVIDIA's upcoming GT200 GPU will be available for $499 in June. Some sites reckon the chip will be launched under the GeForce 9900 GTX and GT monikers but FUD Zilla says it's not sure these will be the final names.
The cards based on the GT200 will sell for $499 and the cards are sampled and work well. Nvidia plans to show the cards to journalists in the last week of May and it’s highly likely to see the launch in June, with retail availability.
It's possible that NVIDIA is going to use a completely new naming scheme as Roy Taylor, NVIDIA's VP of Content Business Development, recently said that NVIDIA's gaming product range needs to be simplified to appeal to a wider audience.
