It's a cash cow and they are getting every penny. I'll just stick with my gtx for now. Maybe SLI..
%100 agree with you. I might grab a pair of 4870s after a few months when the price reduction arrives (or GPU revision), but until then I'm holding down my setup. I can max out everything (except Crysis, lol) at 1920x1080, which is more than satisfactory.
