According to Forbes, AMD (the chip maker) and ATI (graphics card maker) are going to experience a merger of some sorts soon. Right now, the AMD-ATI Merger "looks likely." This could have drastic effects on AMD's and ATI's product line. If this occurs there could be some major ramifications including Intel taking an even bigger dive, better integrated graphics systems, bundles, and price effects.
Right now it is up in the air if the prices would go down or go up let alone if this thing even happens in the first place.
