I am betting that the GTX 460 WILL be in Toms hardware "Best Graphics cards for money August".

My stake is AN INTERNET. Just one.

Any takers?

Its very simple. If you win the bet then you will win AN INTERNET. But only one.
Also to top the previous bet you have to put more predictions such as the GTX 460 will not appearing and every card will be ATI except for one because Voodoo are handing out free Voodoo TGD's on every street corner.

I bet this thread either turns into a flame war, or gets closed. Or both. Or it simply dies.

My wager will be.... two half eaten peanuts, the entire Internets, plus the Interwebz.

I'll bet that this is the strangest thread I've seen on Tom's in the past month. Oh, and the stakes are EVERYTHING. I bet EVERYTHING.

Im with you on the GTX 460 being in there, its an alright card in general but for the money it costs it performs pretty well so its got a good shot

Kind of a 'duh' that the 460 would make the list.

I'll bet two internets that a 460 SLI setup takes the $400 mark where in July there was no recommendation, just an honorable mention.

I also predict there will be only honorable mentions at points more expensive than a 460 SLI setup.

I bet borisof007 and w0lfattack's houses that my PC is capable of time travel.

Im upping the ante to 2 INTERNETS and a Russian spys panties that omgitzfatal is cheating this game because he can travel in time to when computers act as time travel portals, take one and bring it back so that he can travel in time to when they first invented time travel machines so that he could start the whole chain

AND

The GTX 460 in SLI will be an honorable mention replacing the dual 5830's

I bet the 460 takes two different price segments and gets an honorable mention in another. Well to be honest i have no idea where it is price wise in the USA. Im in the UK and it would do so here it would take the £100-£150 and the £150-£200 with the honerable mention being the SLI £250-£300.

My wager is the Internet and every Intranet in the world. The Underverse and the Micro verse as well as every smiley ever created
