Here's my opinion; I will wait for the refresh or another generation of gpus. Nvidia really needs to step up their processing power/performance for the money they are asking.

Agreed. The first impressions is that they are good cards, but not nearly as great as thier PR dept made them out to be....."surprise". Definately not worth the extra dough NVidia seems to be asking.

Things may change in the coming weeks, but for now I'll pass.......
