ATI Radeon HD 4770 targeted at GeForce 9800 GT

The Radeon HD 4770 (RV740) will be the first 40nm graphics card from ATI, it will be launched next month and according to FUD Zilla the card will go against NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GT. The new ATI part will not only be faster, but also cheaper than its rival.
At the moment Geforce 9800GT is selling for $119 to $139 depending on the model, but once ATI introduces the Radeon HD 4770, we are very sure that Nvidia will have to adjust its prices.

The big issue is that Geforce GTS 250 is priced at $139 and more and if necessary, Nvidia might actually drop the price of this card to hurt 40nm Radeon HD 4770 sales.
