Most people buy midrange cards (~$200), which is really where the money is made. Most people have 19-24" monitors. Most people don't go SLI. That's why you're meeting so much resistance in this thread.
The super high end of the market is < %1 of the marketshare - which is why people are dissapointed, fermi doesn't do much for anyone outside that 1%.
The ppl I play games with ask me all the time what to buy. Some of what I tell them is, "the big cards effect mid-range card prices more than anything. And that's a reason to follow them."
Before I ever got my first nV6xxx, I shopped the 6500GT. I got a 5700GT, traded it for a 6200 for AGP, and then traded that for a 6200 for PCI-E....
Long story short, shop High-End no matter what u want.
