Those prices make my wallet hurt. :uhoh:
Perhaps I'll treat myself to a high end dx10 card at tax return time...
I'm getting one around the end of this month. Gonna get the 8800GTS. Might get the GTX if they drop a little. UT2007 and Quake Wars will look so damn sexy on it!
I didn't make it!

I only have an ATI Radeon X300... :( Guess it's time to sell the car again. ;)
605 GBP? WTF? its only $839 CND. 605 GBP is over 1300 CND. I love you brits, but your getting ripped!
Very nice card though, makes my 6600GT seem like a monkey with 8 crayons!
I'm not sure the price in Australia but whatever it is it's a bloody rip off.
It's really a waste of money now because nothing even needs DX10 yet.
Edit: lol $1100, screw that.
Urak'kul;3347444It's really a waste of money now because nothing even needs DX10 yet.
Plus, wouldn't it be prudent to wait for the other shoe to drop? ATI surely has something sweet coming, and it will no doubt help those Nvidia prices drop to a level where you won't feel like you just got gang-raped.
The resualts for the 8800GTX ovcer the ATI X1950XTX vary from 30% faster to 98% faster in reviews. Its mostly dependet on whats its tested on though. SO take the resualts with a pinch of salt. As i say, wait for ATI be out 1 month, Then wait a month to see who the top dog is before buying. What im doing, Pay fdor it now, lose £250/£200 in 2-3 months on it. Just wait
Just because its DX-10 and nothings out for it is not a reason not to get one. It will wipe the floor with DX-9 games.
I dont believe QW is DX-10 either, Only games DX-10 coming up is Crysis which ilkl be avoiiding as its an EA game, And Alan Wake. Not sure on Unreal'07 but not a fan of the series anyway.
2 games im waiting for OFP:AA + Stalker are both DX-9, so no rush for me :)
Here is is for $700USD on newegg:
