    No they aren't.

    Current cpu's are cheap but they're too weak. I'm looking to get a 980X but I can't afford it:banghead:

    I think I should organize a protest...:pimp:

    I can't believe that ATI/NVidia didn't realize years ago that we consumers want it all, want it now, and basically want it for nothing. When will they see the light ???

    I wanna get laid but it's too expensive, all girls should do it for free.

    I'm gonna protest in front of Megan Fox's house, maybe she'll blow me if I yell hard enough.
    HalfAHertz, Darknova, Paulieg and 4 others say thanks.

    If you think Nvidia and ATI high-end GPU's are expensive... You must REALLY hate Apple products then.

    You drive a ford fiesta but want an Audi R8 at a Fiesta price... Time to protest.

    LOL this thread is an epic troll if nothing else.

    I want to drive they way I like (do some burnouts :D) and fill up my gas tank to the top when I have to, but I can't because it's to darn expensive! :mad:

    I'm going to protest in front of Shell/BP/Repsol/Galp. Maybe if I yell enough, they'll give me a few barrels.
    Or trow some off their window, trying to hit me, so I'll shut up.






    Guess I can always get the Oil that's coming out of that leak in the ocean...:rolleyes:

    pretty funny, you would've hated the days of when the ultra was around then, graphics cards(single gpu cards) have been getting cheaper little by little since the GTX and ultra days.

    haha to bad the OP wasn't around back in the day was reading thru a review on the DFI NF3 i have on the way

    you can get a quad core AMD chip for that now OP would have a heart attack trying to spend that much on a barebones chip back from the day.

    To the OP, as you'll be going such a long way to protest to ATi & nVIDIA why not include Seattle and go to Valve and wave some cheese-burgers at Gabe demanding that we have Episode 3 released in the next few months.

    Been there. And trust me its way better to be able to buy everything and cannot afford the majority rather than afford everything and have nothing in shops. This was the case in Poland.

    Capitalism isnt a good system but its the best we have. Value of things should always be market decided.

    I Have A Dream.......

    That one day it will be self evident that all gamers are created equal.......

    All gamers have quad core processors and Triple Channel Memory

    QuadXGA monitors and infinite GPU processing power

    A case that sucks and blows with the force of a hurricane and the sound of a sweet lulliby

    And the ability to build a PC and not F it up on the first try

    A network to stream HD video and download 10mb/sec from Steam

    I have a dream..... :slap:
