I guess this may explain the cheaper price promotion that's currently on.
Still keen to give this a try

Yeah rather spend it on a new monitor I think. I'd love to demo one though to see if it's worth it!

I don't know what is the bigger kick in the nut sack. This, or the Titan Xp.

To be fair, isn't that like, kinda normal, there is always something new around the corner, buuuut i will agree that what nvidia just pulled is just downright wrong.

As for the vive, it still needs to come down in price for me to consider it.
