Hello,
did I make a mistake buying a 5870 vapor-x, this is my first ati card I love it but Im worried that I should have waited for NVIDIA to get a better single card solution?

A 5850 might have been a better value, but no ATI cards are the way to go right now in the high end. We shall see what Nvidia brings at the end of March, but don't worry about it to much, there is always something new and shiny waiting around the corner. Just enjoy what you have and don't look back at what could have been.

Sounds like Nvidia is having some major fabrication issues this generation so I think ATI is the way to go. You could be waiting until summer for nvidia cards to start coming off the line.

I buy whatever video card that best meets my requirements at the time i need to buy a new card.

Does waiting give you more options? Of course. But how long are you willing to wait?

Fermi's a myth pretty much like the female orgasm :lol:  . 5830 might be the best bang for the buck when it gets released.


this guy obviously has the skill with the ladies as well as with the PCs. xD

but yes, given that nvidias high end card id 700 dollars(according to some e-tailers), i don't think they are worth waiting for.

Well you supposedly get ~20% better performance out of the GTX470 over the 5870...at a ~25% price increase. Of course, we'll all have to wait for another month or two before anything really comes out. And by the time the supplies catch up; it might be summer...you could always sell the 5870 in late summer and buy the Fermi then, or get the next gen Ati card. But this is all overkill on what you'd need. It would all be mostly for bragging rights to owning the fastest card...

Nah, like paperfox alluded to you shouldn't bother waiting for Fermi.... you should wait for the HD6870... or the Fermi2... or Larra-Croft-a-bee. Keep on waiting, something good will come by eventually. :whistle: 

Here's an idea, enjoy what you have, and then when it doesn't perform to your expectations/wants in the games you play, then upgrade. If all you're doing is looking ahead for an e-pen1s improvement, then you'll never be happy because something newer and better is always on the horizon. :sol:
