My System Specs

Default 2 choices

Well I could step-up to a GT or a GTS (My step up ends midnight Dec 11th) or O could wait till the 9 series. I think I can wait cause my card is doing fine. What are your opinions? Cause if I step up now I probably wont get the 9 series. And plus I would be out a card for a while till I would get the step up card. But on the other hand I could get the new GT(S) and have a better card for ebay cause my GTS 320mb isn't selling that high. Or I could sell my GTS to a friend. Uh decisions.

Definitely wait for the Next Gen and sell your GTS to your friend once your new card is installed.

From your sig, I see that you have an 8800GTS, so I'd suggest waiting for the 9 series.

I'd play the waiting game as well. You're not looking a much of an improvement if u step up. I was considering the same thing recently and decided not to do it. You're gonna end up dumping more cash by buying a card that only performs a bit better.

Thought that is a rumor, until I hear the facts from the company themselves... ! Though I hope to god that February is correct, I'm still overclocking my 8600GT waiting for the 9 series to come out, and if I can wait, you can wait as well!

Default I would wait

As youve already got an 8800series card it seems a waste to pay more on another better 8800series when the 320mb performs well enough in most current games.

Youll feel much better for getting an 8900series in a few months than wondering if you really should have got another 8800 when the 8900 seems is much better!!
