No it's about graphics. Not graphics cards.

Wrong type of graphics. ;)

I've read all the reviews and hype and jazz, and tbh they are damn impressive - although they are hideously expensive and (dare I say it) overpowered. Mind you, that won't matter when DX10 games begin to be released.

Personally, I'm going to wait for the 2nd gen DX10 cards to come out - if, that is, I get Vista at all. For the moment it looks like I'm sticking with XP.

£605? That's...Vile.

This PC costs less than £605. I've earned more than £605 with it. I'll pass for quite a while.

To be fair that's an overclocked BFG one, meaning BFG is adding to the price, it's not just nVidia setting rape-level prices for a new product. The normal ones are around £500, which is still way too expensive, but it's better than £605.
