With a drop in gpu prices, is there any indication that Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Box will adjust it's prices?

New to the community - but have been following egpu or a long time. I have a Dell XPS 9550, and do some light gaming on my 1440p monitor. I was thinking about the game box for a while, when ~$500-600 range for gpu+enclosure seemed reasonable. Fast forward to Q3 2018, I can get  a 1070 most of the time around $350. 

Do you guys think I should wait and see if Gigabyte will adjust the prices to reflect recent drops?

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

@nakul_bende I don't think we'd see much further drops on the Gaming Boxes. They were never inflated and considered great deals during the coin rush. People bought them to shuck the GPUs then sell enclosures.

thanks for the reply - I agree that they were pretty good deals back then. I am just trying to find out if they are still a good deal, given the GPUs are dropping.
