i've been waiting for months for the kepler release after i build a rig of i7-2600k with P67 platform...but on most speculation thread i read told that the GK104 will be around $400...

problem is that my budget is around $300, should i get a GTX570 or wait another kepler series other than GK104, im currently playing at 1920x1080 resolution on 60hz screen with GTS450

More about : gtx 570 kepler

Unless you can save up enough for the new Kepler in a reasonable amount of time then it might be worth getting the GTX 570. If you are buying from Newegg then they do have purchase options like bill me later and prefered account. If you were to set up a Newegg prefered account then you can take up to 6 months with no interest to pay off the amount if you purchase a minimum $250 , if you spend $500 then you can take up to 1 year with no interest to pay and in either case you can pay the full amount at any time.
So you do have some options and it's going to be up to you to decide. You can also drop down in resolution to extend the 450 for another few months to save more money for the Kepler. The 570 is still a good card and will be a good card for some time to come.

The GTX 570 for under $300 is a great deal right now. The upcoming GTX 680 Kepler card is supposed to be priced much higher than $400, maybe as much as $550.

Well The 570 is not under $300 and a $250 dollar Radeon 7850 is embarrassing it LOL.

Oh have they finally started selling those? Maybe you could provide a link to one for sale.

While you're looking that up, please tell me how losing by 10% is "embarrassing" the GTX 570.

ok guys, thnx for the reply,

after some read through, i did find that radeon currently offer better price/performance card (though im more prone to the NVDIA :p )

i read a review, maybe not legit though, that the gtx 680 will be around $549, $50 more or less higher than the GTX 580

so maybe the price difference for GTX670 and GTX570 will be around that much ill wait for little longer...if couldn't afford mybe time for some changes to Radeon, LOL...

anyway thnx for the replies

it's not 10% ... 0.95 / 0.85 is 12%
