Also, if I ever get the money to get a new video card, I will probably give my money to ATI this time around. They've earned it.
also finished it twice

first run with 8800gtx on dx9 tweaked medium/high/very high.

second run with gtx 280 on dx10 very high.

there are still bunch of new maps/levels that i want to play.

First off all I don't see any price war by AMD, I only see big price reduction on the NViDIA 200 series

Talking about stock "tanking lately".
NVDIA..last 12 months 65.7% down
AMD.....last 12 months 35.4% down

Over all the NASDAQ market is down 15.5%

I'm fully aware that AMD has more financial problems but it looks like NVIDIA is also not doing so great.

Anyway I sure wish them both much better days.

Yea. Don't forget about all the dying GPU's from nvidia. I'm not too thrilled since all 3 of my computers have Nvidia GPU's in them, 2 of which are over 3 years old.

This is only good news.

All you economic projectionists can speculate all you want. A GTX280 under $450USD is good news...period.

Once the GTX 280 hits $300 each, then I will consider upgrading.

I need to sell my 2 8800GTX's for more then 1 GTX280, as 2 8800GTX's are faster then 1 GTX280 by a long shot.

It'll be something when the cards will be available for $450 without a MIR.

"good news...period."

Sure for the customer. For Nvidia? I'm not so sure about that.

He may have been referencing the hundreds of issues people are having with their 280s artifacting and soaring to temps over 100C.
