And actually, a lot of people do.

Its like this. Lets say you have a GTX570. You want a GTX680. Wait 2-3 days to sell it and have the GTX570 Sold. Go Online to buy a GTX 680 and its out of stock. What to do what to do. You cant go and buy GTX580 so the only other option is HD 7950 or HD 7970. I would pay $50 extra just so i can have a GPU to game. 1 week is a lot of time to wait sometimes.

Sad.

I hope AMD loses sales because of this.

Even though I have the 7970 it's still pretty silly they refuse to drop the prices.

Forget the availability of the 680's. The moment the 670's and lower release, AMD is screwed. They need to swallow their pride and losses and drop the prices. No one with a brain would spend $50 more on an inferior product. They'll just wait until they can get their hands on a 680.

This makes no sense. Why would you sell your 570 if you know you can't find any 680's?

Wait until 680's are available, order, put up 570 for sale and collect. Even if you didn't do that, any 'hardcore' pc gamer will have a backup GPU. I myself have a 4870 just for that. I actually sold my 580 and used my 4870 until the 7970 released.

Meh, thats what you think. Most people can't even stand to wait for delivery, like me. I always buy these things at a retail store, I like to have it NOW.

If I were seriously looking for a high end GPU right now, I know I'm gona spend at least 500 for a card. That 50 can just be seen as a "buy it now" surcharge, hell whats another 50 at this level of the game. Most of us are not 12 year old teenagers saving every dollar.

Browsing Newegg a few hours ago no 7970 models on there were out of stock except for the Lightning.

If demand is high for GTX680 price will go up. So now you are waiting instead of having a HD 7970 and for what?

Nvidia should have just sold it for $600 and still run out of cards. Fanboys will do anything to stay loyal.
