I'm little afraid of newegg prices cuz they fluctuate too much and I really hope they don't go up when July 22 comes.

I wouldn't worry about it much, so far the only real product that price changes most often is system memory. VGA cards usually only go down or stay the same. CPU prices are annoying, I paid $330 bucks for my E6600 and the price goes down $110 not too long after, but they usually don't go up.

in nearlly every video where they have been given specs it has been a gtx and quadcore. the good thing about dx10 is it has a very broad support for quads and crysis will be using this alot. but an e6600 o/c to maybe 3+ would be easily good enough. they did however make it very clear that crysis will run at max settings on a gtx with a good frame rate.

That GTX of MSI is very tempting but what about the warranty of them?
