My System Specs


Well, actually, they are relevent. The 7950/660Ti are currently priced around $300. When I bought my 7950 at launch I paid $470+tax. That's a HUGE disparity, and there is NO reason to think that the new 8xxx cards will not launch at that inflated price. Therefore, I predict that the 7950/660Ti will in fact remain relevant for at least a few monthes after the launch of the new cards (just like people still bought 560Ti's well after the release of the 7950/7870.
