I understand that from a "bottom line" aspect, NVidia's play on the situation was good for them, good for their shareholders and possibly good for the future of the company in the short run, but what about the people who buy the products that they produce? I know that product loyalty doesn't really exist in the PC world, but c'mon...

I know that the whole battle between AMD and NVidia is really symbiotic and that we need both of them in order to advance the process of GPU development and also to keep prices in check (Once again NVidia charging TONS of money for their 8 series cards when ATI's 3000 series were total flops). I know that ATI would most likely turn around and stab me and everyone else in the back if it proved to be profitable. I guess it's just been the recently that NVidia has been bugging me. Ever since the 8 series pricing, then the laptop GPU issues, then the 9 series rehashing, then the 200 series over pricing, then the wooden fermi "demo model", then the 400 series issue and now the release of brand new cards that are essentially rehashes of the old fermi's bit with enhanced cooling (vapor) and better voltage / wattage control.

Why didn't they implement these changes in the beginning!? They were already so far behind on their fermi roadmap. You would think that with all the delays and so on that they would have made it up to their customers by going a little extra and releasing something worth while? Not some overheating, power suckling monstrosity of a card that barely beat / stuck with ATI cards that were released months earlier.
I agree...its all a damn conspiracy to personally stroke me and all "green team" users.......now dare they??!!
I have had nothing but sleepless nights thinking about what an "udder failure" my 480's were, not to mention selling them to a fellow Forum member at such a reduced price (only re-cooping 65% of my cost) .....oh God......I simply am besides myself.....no idea what to do now!!!

Imagine them (nv) releasing another GPU only 7 months after the 480......I should have seen it coming! Man, I should never have purchased my 580's as I'm pretty sure there will be something new in May / June...?....maybe I should have waited this time....dammit,,,whoas me....and damn nv!!

........Now seriously......take a "chill pill"...its only a GPU!!
