Wow, Nvidia is leading the way with stupid **** lately.

Sorry Nvidia, at least someone is focusing on real progress for gamers... http://ve3d.ign.com/videos/57180/PC/...C-Tech-Trailer
Are they out of stock because people are buying a lot, or are they out of stock because yields are low and they had to give what they have to Dell?

As far as this card goes, there will likely be more PhysX games launched in the next year than DX11 games.

Last, people will always buy more NVIDIA products than ATi, for the same reason people buy more Intel CPUs than AMD. Intel and NVIDIA are brand names the public associates with quality. Time after time, even when AMD/ATi 'win" for a little while, they end up losing.

Nothing you can post here will change that. (or keep the Grim Reaper off their door as creditors grow anxious for that $5b they owe)
