Well, after reading this little article down at anadtech my mind is made. I will buy an Nvidia 6800 GT. No, I'm not an Nvidia fanboy nor an ATI. My goal is the pure performance/price ratio road. Right now I've got a 9800 Pro and that's where I made my mistake. :x

Linkage to very good Anandtech Article:

http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2113

I blindly believed HL2 and Doom III would be released concurrently within the range that I would be done building my first comp. Needless to say, I was crying in the corner after the news had hit. Not only does the card that I have cost $200 new now but, I spent $389 on one a year ago. :(

My advice, don't take release dates for granted and if you don't want to
spend oodles amounts of money on your comps just comprimise with yourself in terms of performance for price.

UPDATE: Want to buy one? There IN STOCK!!!! :shock:

P.S. My sincere apologies if this is a repost :oops:

I'm Aiming for the Asus 6800GT.

And I don't buy the first one that comes out and eVGA isn't someone I'd want to send $500 to anyway. I pick what I want, then wait on newegg to carry it.

Exactly. :)

I don't think I've picked what AIB I'd buy yet, but the 6800GT is my choice.
