No, but what could you want? Are you going to buy the very latest processor? Do you have a FX-57? So what if there aren't going to be new processors, who wants to spend $1100 on the best one anyway.

And there isn't a VERY big difference between the 7800GT and GTX. Definately not $150 worth. Don't bother with stretching for a 7800GTX if you can afford a 7800GT right now.

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.
Clearly ATI sucks in everyway possible and their cards clearly do nothing and just plain suck all together, i mean no one buys ati cards EVER. ATI making a new card before dx10 is out WHAT ARE THEY THINKING (nvidia is doing the same).

P.S. - out of the 3 new generation consoles, (PS3, XBOX, Revolution) ATI cards are in 2/3 of them.
