    Oh I knew they were coming, I just didn't care.:laugh: I couldn't resist, thats why I'm a hardware junky.

    I got rid of my HD4670 hoping to pick up an HD4770. But with newegg being sold out of them for the past week, I just finally couldn't resist anymore and bought an HD4890...plus the HD4890 had a black PCB which I fell in love with.:laugh:

    Dont forget that 4770 almost beats 4850 (640 vs 800).

    Lower TPD, will allow 3 gpu's on a single card ?5870X3? :D

    with just a 33% increasement in shader/rop/power, they will have a smaller DIE, lower TPD, even lower cost
    Price them high as 4870 retailed, ati is for alot of cash till GTX300 comes out, with 512 bit memory bus, and a big ass DIE, sure gonna cost alot!

    nvidia goes for the crown, ati goes for the crowd!

    We just have to wait and see!

    Now if we can only get a game to run DX10.1 from the ground up before we "jump" to DX11.

    precisely.
    DX 11 fail
    who knows.. perhaps the new DX 11 cards will force DX10/10.1 cards to reduce price

    Well DX11 will not fail. I just want to see a game utilize the current technology before jumping to 11.

    My hardware cycle was set in stone a while ago...
    CPU- 2yr
    Vid- 1yr
    Mem-2yr (Additions are allowed like 4GB to 8GB at anytime between then, this just means like DDR2 to DDR3 ect..)
    Mainboard- Varies- mostly will stick with the CPU lifecycle
