Here's what concerns me, if most people do not think that the gx2 500$ price will drop anytime soon then what do you think the price for the g260 or even the g280 will be....I dont have that money to spend, If I buy the gx2 now and the price drops later, im ganna be livid. What are your pieces of advice?

Thanks,

Based off history, rumors, and common sense:

GTX260 ~ $350-380
GTX280 ~ $530~570

wait. it will go down in price, if the new cards are good, get those. If they aren't good or they are exp then get the 9800 GX2.

wait... according to most rumors the gtx 280 will completely own everything... especially since it's still on gddr3 at even higher clocks... and is an improved architecture... and has more shader things... and will be a beast...

so if the gtx 260 comes out and is say 80 - 90 % of the power of the 280.. then it should equal or even beat the 9800 gx2... at supposedly a hundred less... so definitely wait
