Default Re: Well, I'm waiting for the refresh!

My previous post is a lie. I was going to wait until a refresh or the next gen but a sweet deal on a GTX 470 really speed up my decision. $300 shipped with a free game was too good to pass up. I only paid $40 for this upgrade and if you count the cost of Resident Evil 5 I actually didn't pay anything for a jump from a 285 / 9800 gtx to a single gtx 470. Granted.... I did lose a bit of performance in Physx games, but that's really of no concern at all to me.
