hmmm, that is some great advice Bond(double the performance? that's definitely an interesting thought ). I think what i may do is wait till the 12th(assuming rumors are right) and hope that leads too some potential choices in the BST forum.
However, assuming i were to jump the gun and make an impulse purchase. What is the likely-hood of say the gtx 460 (and/or 560) holding up in two years time as a dedicated physx card? (I like the idea of being able to take card out of the rig and recycling into my next rig to add something to it however an HD 7770 at 89.99$ is a pretty sweet deal). Obviously this is speculation mind you, and no one can really know how it may hold up in two years but it is an interesting thought and maybe in two years more games will support the feature aswell?
