Default wait for the g70?

Im almost positive i will not have enough money for the g70. But i do want to buy a 6600gt or 6800gt. Should i wait for the g70 to come out and wait for the prices to maybe drop on the gts?

If you can wait that long, I'd really suggest you do so.

Depends on what u wanna spend man. Like all video cards, the G70 will probably cost quite a lot when it comes out

In anycase, if u don't have any urgency to buy a graphics card now, then yeah wait .. No point in just "having" it in your computer if u don't absolutely need it..
