Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. Trying to find the best price/performace at this resolution with an ability to scale up with newer games/technologies. I think I read a post about new series of graphic cards that will be made for shader model 4.0, and dx10 compliant. not sure if it was bogus or not. I might wait for that to hit the shelves and then buy the cards hopeing for a price drop.
