I've always belonged in that same catagory. This time around I'm going to try and hold off for 6-7 months after the cards come out. The price always drops quite a bit, plus you start seeing non-reference designs with better/quieter cooling solutions.

I loved my HD4870 (I still prefer NVIDIA's AA implementation more though), but the reference HS/Fan sucked A$$.

I wouldn't mind going with another NVIDIA part, but I'll hold off to see how the price wars settle out.

Fermi White Paper!

http://www.nvidia.com/content/PDF/fe...Whitepaper.pdf

P.S. - Why are these types of documents referred to as a White Paper? Is it because paper is typically white?

Good question, I had to look it up. Appears to be really a marketing tool. Look at the Commercial section of Wiki on White Papers

Totally agree, I have a ATI 4870 right now and I love it. I bought it because of the price at the time. If NVIDIA can give me a similar offering to the 5870 or 5850 with prices around what ATIs are right now I'd buy it. I just can't justify $500 for a video card every six months. I really don't care which card I would get, I have no fanboyism to ATI or NVIDIA I just buy what is the best performance for the best price.

It'd be really funny if Jakup! had 3 boards but they couldn't find one for Jen Hsun to hold up for the keynote speech.
