LMAO...and I'm still running my 8800GTS G92 with every intention of leapfrogging the GTX 2xx series. I plan on building new in May/June and would hate to have to put technology that's almost 1 year old into it (regarding CPU, GPU).

I'm waiting to see what develops in the Spring.

Well in your case ^ it would be a good decision to upgrade.

But for those of us with anything higher than a GTX 260 should probably wait !!

(Unless ya got money to burn but really it's X-mas.. should be the season of
giving not spoiling ourselves !! )

I got my 8800GT in November 2007 for $300 and my GTX 260 for $340 in July, so I am going to try and not spend like that for a while again

It's not just a simple refresh, Nvidea is also coming out with the GTX 295. If thats priced decenty, (sub 550) and it doesnt have the stuttering of the 9800 gx2 I might get one.

lol well thats cool, and also even better for those with one 260 or one 280, looking to go SLI as prices will fall !

However..
I'd like those with 280's 260's, 4870's ect to seriously consider WHAT A WASTE
it would be to upgrade to the new Nvidia GPU'S coming out next month.
There's absolutely no point ! The wise decision would be to save your money !!
Save it and build a completely new system perhaps sometime the END of next year.
I too have a 280 Gtx and I think you may have a point.


ALSO WILL THIS NEW GPU WORK 100% on Intel Chipset Motherboards...i.e crossfire boards?

as its like SLi and dont think it will perform 100% on SLI Boards? maybe will only get power of 1 GPU?
