At the end of summer i will be buying a new computer, but i have heard one beast of a card will be coming out somewhere from september to december.

it is the ati R600 card 65nm (500-600$) video card so they say, but what i wanna know should i buy a 850 XT (115$) card and wait for the beast or just go with 1900XTX (339$) card right now?

Its worth the wait in that the new cards will have the new dx10 features and if you can pay the premium price the cards~$500-$600.

But with Vista being so questionable I would buy a x1800xt for ~$210 now and wait it out for prices to stabilize on R600 cards and for Vista to be out for a bit.

Thats what I'm waiting on anyways... :wink:

I'm wondering on this too. I myself am getting a 30LCD Dell Monitor soon and wondering if I should get the Nvidia Quad setup Dx10 cards when released before christmas or give up gaming for 6 months and wait for ATI's cards.....either decision will cost me around 1200 bucks for the cards so wondering if ATI will really release a killer or just a match-up to nvidia?
