Only thing that i care is the price. If they'll continue their idiotic overpriced madness, they can have all the GeForce cards they want. For the last few years every single GeForce card was quite more expensive than any Radeon while not really offering anything better. The same reason why i'm still on Radeon cards.
I completely disagree. I bought two GTX 470 in 2010 because they were significantly cheaper than the comparable HD 5850. Usually the more power efficient card is priced higher than the competitor's card with similar performance.

Agreed on so many levels :toast:
They don't have enough valid chips to sell. Titan came after 1 year after they had told the press about GK100. And Titan isn't a full working chip either. Hardware disabled as GTX480.

If you havn't learned by now, buying in as an early adopter isn't budget friendly.

BUT, with all the releases and re-releases it does help drive down the costs of previous generations. So when the GTX780 comes out, the 680 will be discounted. :) Everybody wins!
It won't come down as much as you're hoping. This past Nvidia generation have held their value greatly. A new 680 is barely less than it was during it's highest rotation and a used one isn't far off.

The GTX 780 sounds like it's going to be noticeably more than the 680 was at launch. I suspect the 680 will come down about fifty or a hundred bucks and that's it.
