my roomate's aunt makes $83/hr on the laptop. She has been without work for 8 months but last month her pay was $8682 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this



If my 6870 holds up for another year or so, I'll be looking forward to the 8000 series. If not, then I'll certainly welcome these price cuts and probably grab a 7850 (or maybe if a 7870 if I feel like dropping $300).



Hopefully this prompts a competitive price program from both and prices drop another $100 or so by 4Q. I plan on a 670 later this year, but may put it off until next year when the prices drop more across the board. Glad to see things are a changin' though... maybe the next version of Keplar will come out and blow everything away like they said it would. A boy can dream.



i am still on the fence on what my next upgrade will be. My gtx 580 matrix edition has served me well. Don't get me wrong i used to only buy AMD gpu's, but this is all depending on what games you wanna play. i bought the gtx 580 to replace my AMD 5970 because there were issues with frame rate for a while trying to play Skyrim. i will prob wait tell next gen to make a purchase so i can change out my hardware, I'm still sporting the X58 w/ i7 960 and volociraptor hard drives in raid 0 combo breaker.



Always buy Nvidia =) I get less eyestrain from them for some reason waiting for a 660ti but man is it taking forever to come out rumored to come out Mid august but I might spring that 400.00 for the better 670 gtx just because it's worth that extra 100.00 for performance.



This is most likely a preemptive measure against nVidia, who is rumored to be working on a Geforce 660Ti for $299.



No doubt the price drops come on the heels of releasing next gen parts. Soon to see the 8000 series emerge?



I would imagine the next gen GPUs aren't that far off. There are new editions being released on a regular basis. So long as the hardware being bought meets your needs with a little future headroom, then it does not matter if it is the absolute latest tech on the shelf anyhow. The price for a 7970 is pretty reasonable now.



Sweet! I can't wait to have a second 7870.



Nice, I can pick up another 7870 without being burned.
