Been watching it at Evga and wondering when newegg was going to get.  Now I just have to wait till I have some extra cash.  I hate the waiting game.

Actually I am an AMD guy all the way but I don't see any justification for someone to say: "I am gonna buy a GTX or and FX". Only fair reason I see is if you are rich. Other than that why buy it? Is it because you wanna have the best stuff and say to everyone else they don't have crap. I really don't know.

Actaully I buy new cause I like to play games online and with most new games you need the best stuff to really enjoy.  But I also buy all my stuff at cost, so what you pay and what I pay is 2 different things. I also can sell my old stuff in used computers and make back almost everything before upgrading.  Upgrades for me are pretty much free, so for me upgrading is just the smart thing to do.

I see what you are saying that lets say you have a GTX and then when nVidia's next gen vid card comes out your just sell the GTX right? I never thought about that.

Hobbies are expensive sometimes, and if you play alot of games and enjoy them, then 700 bucks is worth it

for me, well, I'm cheap, and I'll just have to pretend my video card is faster than this

I will freely admit I could and should spend money on something more useful but owell I say.  I havent actaully upgraded yet, I have to wait till little more into sept., shop is just to slow during summer to move a larger computer.  I figure once video card drops to 450-500 then I will get maybe even little cheaper then that.  I may want to get it now but even I dont want to spend over 500 for a video card.  For now my 6800GT will do fine or at least till have have a buyer for it that is.
