Glad I'm still holding out with a 7100GS =)

Time to upgrade next month methinks.

My System Specs


Yeah well I just bought a 8800GT, upgrading from a *cough* 6600GT.

Don't think I could have waited another 2 months with that slow a card without starting to gnaw at my keyboard. :P

On the awesome side, NCIX delayed my video card shipment until december 14, and I bought a Galaxy card for $249 on a surprise special. Since they shipped it the 14th, I'm also able to get the $20 MIR, meaning I paid $229 for my 8800GT 512MB.

That article from NordicHardware doesn't make any sense.

Why would NVidia release a GeForce 8950GX2 card, then the GeForce 9800 card a month later?
