I'll stick with my 8800GTS 512 until I build again in the Fall or until I have need for something more. I paid top dollar for my 7950GX2 at release and the 8800 series were released less than 2 weeks afterwards. After almost a year, I replaced my 7950GX2 with an evga 8800GTS and the difference was like night and day.

At this point, the few games I do still play are butter-smooth so, I'll wait until the price drops a bit on the GTX 280 and go that route. I'll not do another single-slot sli.

Shame the 9800GTX+ didn't have 1GB of ram....those on sli would give some serious numbers out.

I am stepping up to the GTX280 from a 9800GX2 but I am waiting for the Queue to start moving again and it now at a stand still.

Default Re: So they're out. What will U DO?

I posted in the other like thread,kinda like this one,about how the 4870 will possibly put pressure on Nvidia to drop prices soon.Now its obvious Nvidia will have to drop pricing.

I dont think they are worth the current MSRP.Not the 280 or the 260.The 260 is IMHO 50$ too much,and the 280 about 100 to 150 too much,given thier performance relative to the competetion.

Now given all that,I will stiill buy a 260 in the next month or two.Maybe even a 280 if I can snag it for ~500 usd,new.

Which is what I think it should be selling for @ stock clocks.I did not think AMD would this incredibly aggressive with pricing ! The 4870 should be selling for 399+ given its incredible performance.

I will never have any interest in SLI/CF,so whatever is fastest and @ 500 USD,in 30 to 60 days.I am also looking forward to the increase in folding output the NEW card will give me.

I currently have 4 systems folding for team Whoopass !

I have a 8800GTX, I'm waiting a few months for prices to drop and see what's up with the ATI cards.

Then I'll see.

The price for the 280 is insane. I thought about the 9800 GX2, not sure, SLI is a PITA.

I really want to change my answer now. I thought the HD 4850/4870 were going to be steaming pile of ****, just like the 2900's. However, ATI has given a new meaning to the word "value" in the video card industry, and I LOVE IT!!! I'm seriously considering getting an HD 4870. It looks like such a fantastic card for 1/2 the price of the GTX 280.
