My last 4 video cards were ATI branded and I loved them, then AMD bought them and customer service went very bad. I will definitly wait to buy my next DX-11 card from Nvidia.

While I'm definitely no Nvidia fan, I have to give 'em props for trying new things.  We'd be nowhere right now if people just kept improving old technology.

  At this point I think that The New GPU API will be comimg out right on time, Other MFG's and New software / Games will be out or release in the first Q of 2010, SATA / USB 3.0 will be suported on all new release Mother boards as well as those juicy 6 and 8 core CPU's  will be out at the same time in which the Nvidia New GPU will take advantage of,  I am sure the the Boy's here At Max PC will be the first of the few to get there hands on the New GPU and give us the real low down on it, And will not Disapoint, For those of you that did not go out and up grade these pass couple of months its worth the wait, you will be happy you did, For those that did go and laid out dollar bills to soon, I would say to bad,

forget about dx11 just give us a card that can hold a grain of salt next to the 5870 or the 5970, and has physx!

just my thought, anyone else?

Nvidia Corporation = FAIL in 2009

I believe them when they say they arent worried about DX11. but even more important is that they have missed the holiday buying season. I wouldn't be suprised to see that ATI made a killing this year with the only new parts on the market.

missing out on DX11 is nothing compared to the free reign ATI has at the moment.

  Until just a few days ago, there were NO Radeon 5870's to be had for love or money. There are now a few brands that are starting to show in stock but not major brands. The card has been out for what? 3 months now and they are finally shipping? NVidia may not have a product yet but, in truth, neither does ATI until they can fill the pipeline.

  The other thing that is hurting ATI are the reports of buggy drivers and bad cards that are cropping up in the reviews on Amazon and NewEgg. It may be fast but I certainly will not buy an ATI 5870 until mostly good reviews. 

   All this adds up to an opening for NVidia to exploit if and when they can get cards out.

if the lead is big or not doesn't matter when your looking for the fastest stuff the fastest wins. I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys pump out eventhough i would have to sell my brother to afford it

Win 7 for gaming sure, but why the terminal? Not that it wouldn't be totally sweet if it were that easy to get win 7 from a repo for free.

the problem with that is most people are looking for cards at this time of year. not two or three months from now. missing the holiday season is a massive blow to Nvidia. no matter how they try to spin it.

everyone looking for a new card is snagging the 5800 series. not waiting for Nvidias phantom GPU

At least when nVidia does come out with Direct X 11 video card they will have to price it less than ATI. nVidia will have to have massive improvement in FPS to get premium price.

 and with a street price of what $250 (forget suply and demand inflation, you can't price agaisn't that) the new Nvidia parts sould be a bargin...or you know everyone will STILL buy ATI

Not only did ATI beat Nvidia to Direct x 11 hardware they also got a jump on driver development. I just hope it's not a one hit wonder.

My brother and I ran them in Crossfire in one of our machines. Two 5870s is one hell of a combination!
