According to X-bit labs, there's a new crop of lower-cost DX10 compatible cards on the way:

In an attempt to drive the latest DirectX 10 features down to all market segments, both ATI, graphics product group of Advanced Micro Devices, and Nvidia Corp. plan to roll out a set of inexpensive DirectX 10-supporting graphics cards that are set to be sold in retail at the prices at or below $99.

Read the full story at X-bit labs :

ATI plans to commercially launch its Radeon HD 2400 Pro and HD 2400 XT graphics cards with 256MB of memory officially priced at $69 and $89, respectively on the 28th of June, industrial sources indicated. Nvidia reportedly plans to release its GeForce 8400 GS solutions with 128MB or 256MB memory onboard on the 19th of June. Sources familiar with Nvidia’s plans said that the GeForce 8400 GS 256MB will cost $89, whereas a 128MB flavour is projected to cost significantly lower than that. Prices of ATI Radeon HD 2400-series graphics cards with 128MB of memory are unclear.

Low-cost DirectX 10 solutions will allow both leading suppliers of standalone graphics processors to boost their market shares, as large system integrators tend to advertise advanced capabilities, such as DirectX 10 and HD video playback, but keep prices of their systems low to appeal to mass customers.
