Post I HAVE NO VIDEO CARD!!

OK, I sold my cards... now..
1 - I WANNA PLAY BF3 AND MW3 AND SKYRIM
2 - I dont have any cards ATM (other than an old 5770)
3 - I wanna buy EPIC CARDS! (SLI'd 570's / GTX 580)
4 - Kepler is comming Q4
5 - ITS ALREADY Q4
6 - NO SIGN OF KEPLER YET

So..., if you guys were in my position... What would YOU do?

Do I not buy anything and play League of Legends till GTX600 comes out?
Do I waste money to play early?

Did you sell your two GTX 480 that you have in your sig
those would play BF3 and MW3 very well.
Kepler won't be out till close to dec or next yr Q1

Kepler is not Q4.
Kepler is more than likely Q2 2012. Not that I have any basis for that.
See Answers above.

- Get a 580 or Two. Game now and enjoy!

When Kepler comes, sell 580's and buy Kepler.

Personal opinion here, but I wouldn't be able to wait to play later. I'd probably buy the cheapest card that could give me playable FPS at the detail settings I wanted and then sell it and upgrade to get over the top FPS/and or higher details.

That's just me.

Yea, i drove 1h 20min to get this (on way) and spent $30 bucks on gas lol.

Tested last night works perfectly. EXCEPT this guy man.. I come to see this card DUST INFESTED T.T
Cleaned it before even plugging in the thing.

IF you want to buy it off me for $400 shipped or local, we can talk tomorrow (found a good deal on HD6990's) (i'd tell you which site, but everyone will read it and you already post your WTB's on that site already, so you can find it easily)
And i just wanna see if this guy is legit
