Price cuts are always good things, and for ATi they are going to be a necessity due to nVidia's success with release 180.
According to Fudo over at Fudzilla ATI will cut prices on the 4870 and the 4830. The 4870 shoulf drop by about $20 and the 4830 should drop under $100.
The 4830 has been a surprise performer this year and a pair of these in Crossfire can handle some pretty hi-res gaming the latest price cut should make it a great performance/price option.

The lovechild of ATI engineers and AMD accountants, dubbed Radeon HD4830, has finally dropped under the 100 mark and started to make sense.
We tested it a month ago here. Sanjin was impressed by its performance, but not thrilled about the ridiculous pricing. Back then it was priced at 125, on par with HD4850 cards and obviously it didn't make any sense. We kept our eyes open for the price drop and told you to wait a bit in case you wanted one and this morning the new price started popping up on price search engines.
