Default DX 10 cards

i am waiting for the DX 10 video cards to come out so that i can build an insane gaming machine. my only worry is that i dont have much to spend on a DX 10 card. up to 300$ is my limit. would i be able to buy one the those cards right away when they come out?

i highly doubt it because hardware manufacturers invariably release their flagship products first. which in this case will be the 8800GTX and we all know how much GTX's retail for upon release.

**** no, the 8800GTS will be $410, and that's the cheapest one.

8800GTS is meant to be around £350 on launch with limited number available. (According to OcUK.) So no you can't.
