Sorry for my abrupt response, I was crabby.

You're right, no one deserves to get screwed over just because nVidia has the marketing-machine-from-hell....it's kind of why I've been screaming about it all year too.

Tell him to hold off on his decision until the 30th since there are new cards coming out and prices will drop. (It's the truth, PLUS the HL2 benchmark will be available and it'll open up a lot of eyes. )
