Hello, I'm interested in buying the XFX 7950 GT, but I'm not sure if I should go ahead and buy it now or wait for a price drop when NVIDIA releases their DX10 cards next month.

What would you do?

There are better cards for less money... 1) X1900XT and 2) 7900GTO.

Thank you, stranger! Now apply the previous question to the 7900 GTO ;)

Are you the Megiddo that made ULX or whatever?

I'm looking at the same issue myself. The 7900GTO seems like the sleeper card out there and is already pretty cheap. Retail prices probably won't come down too much. I know it took almost a year for the 6800GT prices to decrease enough that it was relevant.

So, if you want a 7900GTO then I don't think you'll be kicking yourself in the ass two months from now because the price dropped $100, it will probably drop just a small amount.

What I'm hoping is that when a bunch of folks jump on the 8800's there will be a glut of great, used, high end 7900 series on the market and the prices will be fire sale cheap.

Yes... I'm rather surprised to be recognized outside the GMod forums. 8O

If u wait until G80 comes out, ull want to buy G80.

I say, get the X1900XT 256MB or the 7900 GTO 512MB and wait for R600 in Feburary. Then sell the card and buy either G80 or R600.

Thats what im doing.
