And yet you pay even more in £ than $ in the UK.

I hate how companies do this. ****ing annoying.

To help your post, yes they are likley to continue drop in price or at least stay the same price. More likley stay the same price until after Christmas for the sales.

Pretty much the biggest beast you can afford and forget about HDR. G80 will be out by then so get the 8800GT/GTS but there will be in high demand with short supply (according to Mr Gibbo of OcUK.)

That said 2048x1536 isn't too bad with my 7800gt with out HDR. I get around 50fps in actual gameplay. I will do a CS stress test if you want a bit later. The biggest limiting factor with games like BF2 at this res is memory on the card and physical RAM for the textures.

And the result was 52fps. So about 45 on a 7800gt all high with 2x aa and 8x af. SLI is a must or a 8800 series tbh.

Better not post that as a image.
