ahh.....they are on it again.....

i checked 2 shop yesterday, looking at the new Ati GFX cards.

at first, i saw a price between £260 - £290

that was before they showed stock in hand

now, today i check again, price has bumped up by £10 more

and quite honestly, i really dont know why they are playing ping pong prices, its REALLY annoying!

anyway, back to what i was gonna say.

i'll give this option out for ALL at OC3D, i have £300 to spend, and i NEED a new GFX card.

the other thread i created, asking the same, almost everyone points me to 8800GTS640, but i waited....cause ST/WCUK didnt have any stock of EK GTS BLOCKS!!!!GRRRRR

but.....this time i wont be so stupid in trying to wait for both....

so, should i go RED?

or, go GREEN?

i cant be bothered with all these 16AA or whatnot results.....its too new, so im in for a gamble!

once the results is done, trust me, i'll grab em quicker then you can say the 14digis on your card!

tbh NV will probs give u better performance -- by a few frames (but ATi driver maturity could change that)

but id go red because .. these cards will both stop performing adequately around the same time and there is a better chance of a F@H client for the ATi sets
