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.
Linkage to very good Anandtech Article:
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!!!!
