Either way, I still feel like I was ripped when I bought my 7800GTX 256MB. Two months later was the 7900GTX 512MB was out for not much more $$$ and I had no idea it was coming. Otherwise, I would've gotten that and bit the bullet for two months. Yeah, that pissed me off.

Main reason im pissed is b/c i lost my job and i wont be able to buy one when it comes out. ARGH

:fu: >> :beer2: >> :dance: >> :alc: >> :barf:

Excuse me, im just venting.

There is always something bigger and better around the corner. If you always wait for the next best thing you won't have anything :)

Nvidia released their 7900gtx, so that they could keep the performance crown. With the g80, they don't have any competition until Amd releases their r600. So, I guess we won't see an update before that. :)

The 7800 series was king for 2-3 months I think. 7900 series is like 8 months old. He had the best for 2 months instead of 8 months. Simple math [though the numbers in months I gave are no doubt slightly off] I can see why he regrets his purchase. I just lost my job too... this sucks.

Good luck from www.overclockers.co.uk they have said the price for the cards is 500 for the GTX and 350 for the GTS which makes them around $850 and $600 Only 200 will be at lunch in the entire UK Close enough to a paper launch to me them prices are insaine no G80 for me.

They will still be known as ATI

If there were ever a time to wait, it is now.

Vista is another two months away from release at the consumer level, a lot of things still need a shake down and even if the 8800 is great at DX9, I think my Quad SLI rig can hold out another four months or so.

I've been running Vista RC2 on a convertable tablet and it works pretty well. Still missing some drivers for a couple of things, like my bluetooth dongle for my wireless headphones.

DX10 when Vista is ready and only then!

hmmm... I think it depends more on how the R600 performs.

I'm happy with my GTO, if in 2 months I have money to step up to G80, the price is reasonable and the G80 is available as a step-up option, I might just upgrade.

^wants to see official review first

What do you expect though, this is the technology industry, there is always something bigger and better coming out ever couple of months.

I wouldn't feel bad about getting a 7800GTX 256MB instead of a 7800GTX 512MB. The 256MB version was on June 22 2005 and the 512MB on Oct 30 2005. And although the 512MB was launched, it had poor availability and anyone who remembers trying to get one last year knows that if you did find a place that had it in stock, the 7800 GTX 512MB was ludicrously overpriced.

Plus by that time you could have gotten another 256gtx for SLi and pay a much lower price.

The 7800 series was king for about 5-6 months. It wasn't until then that it got some competition from ATi's R520. I don't count an early paper launch as competition. Nvidia countered with the 512 meg 7800gtx soon afterward.

I wouldnt doubt the 8900 series release will be far from the 8800 series. And besides, with the new architecture on both sides (hardware and software), theres going to bugs on both ends. ie: Much like the early batch of 6800 cards with the broken "video processor".

I have same feeling and since this is very first Experimental DX 10 Cards. So these need improvements. E600 will bring competition to the market but not yet.
