Early adopters always get screwed, don't we? I paid $450 for my 7950, and no free games.

Yeah, but you have had plenty of enjoyment with it for the last few months. Early adopters get longevity. Late adopters get free shit.

I hate using AMD video cards since they took over from ATI, because lack of driver support, for newer games etc. That just doesn't cut it for a consumer.

and who as the best driver tonight...... it's cut like a knife in the butter.

Well... dammit. Now i gotta go spend money lol

Well played AMD. We're all opening our wallets soon.

Time to do some research into some 79xx or 78xx cards. Knowing me though, probably a 7970. What'll I do with my GTX 680? Hmmm decisions decisions. lol

Well, if you do not want it and would just be throwing it away, I would take it to replace my GTX 460. :P
It would be bottlenecked by my x4 9950 though.

C'mon Sky.... you're killing me here!!

Is it major enough to entice one to jump from an 1100T or is that just wishful thinking?
