I dont know if that really holds water, the people that buy $600 cards are upgrading every year, or sooner, typically. So the whole "its not future proof" doesn't really matter, IMO. I mean, in the same boat, you shouldnt buy a NV product at all because it doesnt support DirectX 10.1, which games already are using, and will use more in the future.
