A few weeks ago i bought a BFG GTS 640mb. Was that the biggest waste of money this year?

If the GT is merely $230 (£115), my GTS cost £230

I think people are skeptical because of the naming. If they had called it the 9800gt or 8800gts2 or 8900gt people would believe it easier.

I am so glad I didn't jump on the 2900PRO or 8800GTS, really glad!

You would have been better off waiting for the 8800GT, but the 8800GTS is still an awesome card.

And the BFG is good because it retains its resale value a bit more due to the lifetime warranty.
