Well, it's my only "window of opportunity" for the year, got the spend the $$$ when it's there!
I'll play the waiting game for the GTX470 at the end of the month. I might pass on that, as I expect my computer to be running great with an SSD. I'm getting Bad Company 2 today too, my GTX260 should give me an AVG 60 fps on med-high settings at 1680 X 1050.

It's DONE!!! I ordered the OCZ VERTEX 120GB (and Win7 64 bits)!!!

The 3 years warranty, the $40 MIR and the reviews sealed the deal.

4. My 120GB Vertex DID ship with FW 1.5....I would assume that if mine did 6 weeks ago they all will now.
Crossing fingers on the firmware thingy I could be lucky this time around, after all when I ordered my Q9550 I was expecting a E0 and got a C1, so this time "I'm entitled" for some luck....took air shipping too (I live in Qc), cause can't wait for ground shipment on this!!!!
