We should have cards in stores by June so it's not too far away.

Anyone thinking of doing some upgrading?

i would wait until christmas.

first, the prices will drop. second, PS4 NEO or whatever it's called now.

unless, of course, one considers PC to be the master race. but even then, with the lack of dx12 titles, unless you're gaming in 4k, new hardware doesn't bring anything new to the table, imho. not yet.

Jesus, the high-end PC market has passed me by so much.

I don't think I've so much as thought about a new video card since Windows 7.

I feel like I looked up one day a month ago and suddenly EVERYONE was getting a VR setup.

fml.

I hope to get an HTC Vive at some point and I do game at 7680x1440 at times so having more horsepower is always nice.

Heh, I know almost nothing about graphics cards at the moment. I've got an R9 270 in there at the moment, don't know how that stacks up.

Been thinking of getting one of those ultra-wide-screen thingumies. That might take a bit more omph I suppose. VR's interesting as well.

Absolutely. I've been holding off on what card I'm getting until these drop. In the end, I dunno if I'll just be getting a price dropped current-gen card or not. We'll see if specs live up to what they say they will

Yeah, I've been starting to think about upgrading since a couple new games, like Rise of the Tomb Raider, won't run at max settings on my setup. And the HTC Vive is a bit enticing as well. And it was only last year that I got my second GTX 980 :(

I'm not planning to buy a new video card just yet, though. Maybe next year.

Definitely curious if they will live up to the expectations. From what I heard the Nvidia cards may be rather expensive. I bought a GTX 970 only last November, so I'm good for a while. But eventually I'll wan to upgrade to 4k gaming and then it may be necessary to buy a card of this latest generation.

Have they actually announced what their launch product lineup is going to be yet, though?

No, but all the rumors (and some that seem pretty legit) are pointing towards it.
