Don't forget when the ATI stuff comes out... then you'll bounce to those as well...

I'm pretty happy with my GTS... but I'm to chicken right now to play with it... I don't wanna lose that much money, since I'm going to back to the land of bill paying and little money left. I've read a lot of things about the 680i boards... has quite a few bugs to fix, but once they do, it'll be a killer board. Good luck and have fun!

You know, the sad thing is I can remember when the ATI 9800 PRO was the hot new card (well, as a matter of fact, I remember when the Voodoo 4MB Card was hot ) and it sold for 500.00+...in a couple of years the 8800 will do the same....technology has a way of doing that.

yeah, I suspect the R600 will be better than G80.

That, and prices will be better when R600 does come out.
