And the perfect example of this was this...I bought my HD5870 in OCT 09. Sold it in April 10 for same money I paid for it and switched to GTX 480 for $100 more. Otherwise I would've been sitting on my hands for 6 months with a slower, Non DX11 GTX 280. I'm so glad I went to the HD5870 and didnt wait for the delays of Fermi - I used it for 6 months and then sold it for what I paid for it (best holding value GPU I've ever owned)... and that is why you don't keep waiting for the next big thing....
