worth waiting for southern Islands and kepler gpus?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a GTX 260 and have started doing research on video cards. I was suprised that the gtx 570 that came out last year is still at the same price point of 340.

I hear the amd southern Island gpu's will be out around december and should have a very large preformance increase. while nvidia kepler wont be out till beginning 2012.

I know If I get a gtx 570 now I will likely sell it once kepler cards come out, so should I just wait?

i would, but nvidia likes to push back their timelines a lot. i wouldn't bank on a specific date yet.

i would wait;

your 260 should handle most of everything on the market right now to a satisfactory level, unless youre trying to play bf3 or something.

what games are purposing your gpu for?
