No point jumping yet, Nvidia's next gen card is only a few months away. Even if it's not as good at the 5xxx series from ATI it will bring the prices down.

haha, CF :P

Yeah the GT300 would be good to wait for, just to drop the prices, unless it's what they did with the previous 2 gens of cards, just renaming the 8800GT :( that's what turned me off them.

Still, if they brought out a card better than the 5870 at the same or lower power consumption, count me in :)

Hell yeah :) and you won't use as much power as 2x 4870s, so double the benefit.

I need a heat pump, guess I could convince the woman that it has dual purposes, although then she'll complain about me spending too much time gaming again
