I pritty much have to agree with this. The 68xx series seemed to me to be a stop-gap solution when nVidia 'caught up' to AT...err AMD ().

I really hope the next gens dont do this double-dip (triple in some cases) reuse architecture that has been happening since the 8800/9800/gtx250 series rebranding. It makes it very difficult to decide on which card to get at a give price point when in 4-6 months new cards come out and take a chunk off the cost (ala 460-560 fiasco)
My Disclaimer to any advice or comment I make;
