The second is that once you get your new piece of tech, it's already outdated.
After returning my 590 in Q2 2011, I told myself to wait *just 1*
(lol) harmless quarter for Kepler since the 580 was already out for 5 months. Good reasons to wait but a bad decision in hindsight.
Then I made an emotional purchase in Oct 2011 when I heard Kepler wasn't coming
So now I'm stuck with this 580, a good card but one I never wanted anyway. So I've been waiting a year and half now to upgrade, to find out it's rumored to be delayed another year.
And I'm not buying a 680 almost year after it debuted so I'm stuck with the 580 until Kepler 2.0 comes out.
Watch, when I buy the $900 Titan in Q4 they'll release Maxwell 6 months later which will be $500, 30% faster, and much cooler and efficient
