Amen...new technology is like "ubber new". like even when it comes out, you won't have it for a while, and then something else is already better, but then that won't be out yet...until you buy what you were looking for. then they get rid of reverse compataibility on your asss and well all be up shiitcreek

If you can get a 7800gt, then you can surely wait for the G80.

The price drops and im sure they will make a midrange card like the 7800GT in the G80 series. Always happens and should be the same price. Thats what he means. Also, if you can afford a GT now you can save that GT money and you will have more money to afford the top of the line card then when they come out.
