    If you wait April big chance next AMD graphic card series are out, but they SURELY will be overprice if Nvidia not release their new series yet. Simply because they stand alone without competitor. But if next series out, you can buy the 7xxx series because big chance they'll get price cut
  2. The 8850 will surely be priced way more than the 7850, you'll have to wait for nvidia AT A MINIMUM for the price to drop.

    thanks for the reply,, but benchmarks r nt practical and intel is way outta my budget... ma frend just gotta i7 960 and my other frends 8150; in my opinion 8150 kills i7 in terms of v-ray rendering and afterfx with lots of particles.. thats y i opted for amd i use vray and particles ,, .. I won't be using it for more than a year also... I keep updating my rigs lyk every 17 or 18 months.. will wait till april for 7770,,,
