Thats pretty funny buddy. I'm still using 8800 series cards,and if I did have a 280 I sure as hell wouldn't sell it for 285 or a 275 to safe power and I don't think any of us are into computers to come across as tough.

I wouldn't take RS's comment to "heart".......the context of the comment could be a bit "misleading" ;)

A agree....I am in no way planning on ditching my 280's for anything but GTX3xx Series..........

I was just saying you where being stuborn =P obviously if you had GTX 280s you wouldnt sell them for GTX 285s... but if you where to rebuy right now do you honestly think you would go with the GTX 280 even though its old tech and out of date? I know I wouldnt =) Im personally with Rj, no more new cards (aside from maybe a 2nd GTX 260...) till the 3xx series come out.

Most GTX280's are still worth more on ebay for example then a GX275. For the $10 difference in price right now if the 280 had the 90 day step up still(I don't think it does)I'd buy a 280. I'm not saying I'm right but thats what I'd do ...

Anyway I what to upgrade the rest of my system to be ready for the 300 series,I'd just hate myself in the morning if I ordered a new video card now....but its hard to resist with killer cards $300 and less.

Welcome to the world of GPU's.......I remember literally days after the purchase of a GTX 260 (192) FTW...Evga released GTX 260 (216)...........

I the past year and half I've had:
8800GTX
GTX 260 (192)
GTX 280
Thankfully I was smart enough at the time NOT to step-up my 8800GTX to a 9800GX2 !!
