My GTS just sold on ebay for what I payed for it so I have some cash to spend
I have NO graphics card as soon as I take it out and post it off !!!
I could TRY to snap up an 8800gt 512mb if im lucky ,Then sell it at the end of November to upgrade to the g92 gts,
Or I could just buy an 8500gt or whatever (I dont know anything about the low enders) and wait...

But that would leave me with a crappy card to play Crysis on in the meantime

Whats an idiot to do???

You and I have a LOT in comon. I just sold my GTX for $450 on ebay. I however borrowed a X1600 from another member so that I still have a PC until I grab a new card.

I planed to grab a GT for now and then sell it when the new G92 GTX comes out. I am hoping that my 8800GT doesn't drop in retail till then.

For us GTX owners the time to sell was this week. Once the GT is out and the public learns about its performance we will lose massive resale value. The only problem is with us selling now is the lack of a product to buy...

While the GT is fast it losses its speed in games such as Crysis because such games utilize the 768 megs of onboard ram. Not to mention the memory bandwidth. AGT simply cant provide us with this nor is it that great at 1920x1200. Now don't get me wrong its a fast card its just not as fast as our more powerful GTX's.

GTX's and Ultra's still king IMO.

I just sold my 320mb GTS on ebay as well. I think I had your auction up in another window, think you got $60 or $70 more than me ;)
I'm in the same situation, in-between video cards but thankfully I have a couple older backups (OLD Geforce2mx 32mb and ATI x600 128mb) until I get an 8800GT or whatever is the best price/performance in November.

I bought a ati 2400 something from a 2nd hand shop(Edit: faulty replaced with 7300ls) for web browsing and 640x480 gaming, But im still gonna try to get hold of a GT on the 29th oct ,Hopefully I can ebay it in late november for a profit if they are hard to get hold of...

Where are youa ll getting this G92 GTS from? The G92 is the GT, and I'll put money on it thats all you'll see for 3 months at least. I can understand GTS owners selling but not GTX/Ultra.

Look at the older highend 7 series they still fetch a decent amount of $$.

I would rather not go w/o a video card and have to pay $100 more than using an old POS and not being able to play like I am used to.

Read somewhere that they are putting out a new GTS in november, assumingly a G9x version.

Cevat Yerli: Very, very well. Stay tuned for more on this. In mid November you will see the new NVidia cards. They are a blast for Crysis and really, really very good deals.

Im reading Nov 19 as the date for the new GTS, here and there.
Also people are saying 128 SPs, so it looks alot like the "old" GTX
