Interesting. If u set in buying the most expensive card, why would a price drop in a cheaper card sway u I wonder ?

Price drops are always good imo.

Mwah, I do not want the most expensive nor the best -- just the best one my kind of money can buy without me having to stop eating for it.

I think ATi's going for the value for money again now that nVidia has regained the performance crown.

I know, but I explained anyway ^^ I guess most people think that way, and that ATi will gain some advantage with this. Not everyone can afford the best.

Yeah that is a good point to make actually, I think that we are going to see very little of the price drop ourselves over here in the UK.

If I had the chance and I knew that my aunt was coming in from the US I'd ask her to bring me one and I'd pay her the cash for it if I had it, although it's very unlikely to happen. Nevermind
