Dont buy the new GPU's!
 
With new video cards right around the corner it's easy to get excited, and
to get that 'must have' feeling we all get whenever a new product is announced.

However..

I'd like those with 280's 260's, 4870's ect to seriously consider WHAT A WASTE
it would be to upgrade to the new Nvidia GPU'S coming out next month.

There's absolutely no point ! The wise decision would be to save your money !!
Save it and build a completely new system perhaps sometime the END of next year.

I for one am personally going to see how long my GTX 280 holds it's own.. and
something tells me it's going to be a while. :)

Riiight.

We all know this is a simple refresh with a little more polish to tide us over until the new architecture comes through. I am liable to get a new 260 or 280 myself when they release. I want more VRAM and power and the prices should be even more competitive.

I'm just waiting to see what the current 280 drops to ,hopefully it's in the high 200 range.
