Ok so we know ATI and nVidia are launching dx11 gpus this year... there will probably be some games that will use some of its features (hw tesselation, shaders 5.0 blablabla) which is nice... more over, these cards will be 40nm which is great, but my question is: is there any chance they will launch a sub $150 or sub $100 dx11card this year? I want to wait, but there's not a chance in hell I will buy a $399+ card... Thanks!

Why you don’t want to buy a $399+ card? Every man that respect himself must buy a graphic card that cost $500+ every year.

Also PC gaming is not an expensive hobby actually is a very cheap. Even if your salary is only 1500$ you CAN afford to spend 3000$ every year for a new PC (250$ per month 250x12=3000$) really 250$ per month is nothing.

Get a card now from a company that has a trade in program ex: BFG, EVGA, etc.....then when the dX11 cards come out, trade the card for one of the new ones (dx11), but make sure you have proper timing due to the fact that these companies offer between 90 and 100 days before your trade in expires.....

Usually if there is a delay it is in the low to mid ranged cards however I expect this time around we should see all the cards within short time of each other.

Just follow my recommendation, as i am doing the same with my GTS 250's and should not encounter any issues at the time of the trade-in. If you need help doing this let me know......

I'm sure the plan for ATI is to release the $199 card and the $299-349 card just like they did with the launch of the 4850 and 4870. The +$500 card will then come out latter and will be an X2 card of whatever the $299-349 card. While that may have been the plan low 40nm yields probably means that the $199 card will be delayed, once once yields get better AND much of the existing inventory is cleared then the cards below $150 will start rolling out
