Why buy a POS for $650 when something that HUGE is that close! I want DX10 sooo bad but i don't think it will be on my next build in june/july...still be too expensive 4 me then if its out then. but a biggggggie to watch out for is the AM2 socket mobos. the 939 will no longer be supported so a new 939 mobo would be stupid too.
You're dissing ATI, but you forget that Nvidia is also coming out with atleast 3 new versions of the G70 series...G71, G72, and G73...So if you're using that argument, its Nvidia that's flushing $$$ down the toilet.
As for why people buy them, like was said above; Its the lastest and greatest, and it lasts longer. Also, the highest cards let you run at the highest resolutions, and if you've got the money, then why not?
