    Save money for Fermi, the new GPU's from Nvidia will stay in the dust all Ati 5000 series.

    Yeah i would like to see that too

    i don't see myself getting one, not at least prices are half and they are completely mature, meaning no decreasing performance.

    Either save the money or buy something you want badly. Buying something you don't really intended to buy just because you suddenly have the money likely leaves you with regrets.

    So? about the watercooling and PS3, any ideas?

    I hear that, though when it comes to PC components I hardly find myself regretful hehe

    You already got more than a normal gaming rig has, why bother with a ps3? You'll end up just playing exclusives.

    I got a PS3, and I like to play racing and sports games in general on a console, and strategy/shooter games on a PC. Its a perfect mix. Plus: There is no God of War for PC.

    It depends actually, you can have the same experience if you hook your pc to a giant tv and buy yourself a nice controller :) There are some rare exceptions (fifa crap) where the game isnt the same but heck, everyone's entitled to their own opinions! :toast:

    God of war is great, but $199 or whatever the ps3's price is, for just 2 or 3 games? (uncharted, gt5 if itll ever come out, killzone comes to mind) but like I said, everyone's entitled to their own opinions! :toast:

    Yeah to each their own:) I like Grid on PS3 over the PC version, but the loading times on the PS3 version are killing me. Anyway. And The God of War series are worth buying a PS3 lol. In fact I have bought my PS3 because of Burnout Paradise. And BluRay support.

    No offense, Burnout Paradise was kind of lackluster compared to previous sequels and the original.

    @douglatins
    Buy yourself another Samsung T240 if you got the desk space. Maybe a Blu ray reader?

    None taken, Burnout 2 still holds the crown for me.

    Another T240 would be nice but a P2370 is 60% the price, and a Blu-ray reader is somewhat the price of a ps3

    Speakers and a good sound card? Honestly, bank the money for rainy days, I have seen people spending everything on pc only to sell them because they ran out of cash.
