Saw that this morning too.
Now i know i made the right decision buying the 4850
SoOOOooo funny in the computer shop yesterday, guy was tossing up between a 9800 and a 9600. The 9800 was still almost twice as much as the 4850, which was the same price as the 9600. Shop guy says "NoOOoOooo there are noooo new gfx card developments coming up, and there has been nothing for awhile"
All i could do was laugh as they guy paid ~$200AUD for a 9600.
