Nah, definetly wait for the X1900XTX, it's going to be priced around the same price as the 7800GTX 512 or cheaper. And it's going to perform better, much better. And there will be plenty of them, a steady supply.

No.. This forum makes me laugh sometimes...

The G71 is dx10 and is to be released Q3 or Q4 with vista.
The 7900GT/X is coming out next month or so and the 1900XT is already out...

Yeah thats a problem these days. It used to be that something came out, then the technology got old, the price went down and something new came out to take its place. Now new technology comes out so fast it doesn't have time to "replace" the older technology in its price slot, it just makes a new higher price slot on top of it.

that's the cycle that I'm just freakin sick of. If they can't afford to produce it, then hold off or wait longer to produce something that really kicks the snot out of the old stuff. People can't keep up with this.
