That is still no excuse to buy an inferior product. That 4-5 fps later on could mean the difference between playable or not on a future game. You can't just sell yourself short.
Say I need a new car. At the dealership there are two cars. They are the competing models from two companies. One goes 100mph and gets 30mpg, the other goes 110 and gets 30mpg. They cost the same. Assuming all other important specs are the same which do you get?
Unless Crysis is the only game you play the 9800GTX+ isn't a smart buy, nuff said.
Not only that but Folding is a very very niche thing. Most people who just come here for advice once on a blue moon have never heard of it. So although it is a perfectly reasonable justification for Ricanflow when he buys cards, for 80% of us it is a non issue.
