the price on these things is rediculous. I can't imagine upgrading to one of these any time soon.

The prices will go down fast if nvidia wants to compete with ATI

Well, I hope so, maybe then I can get a second 260

I bought a EVGA SSC 9800GX2 about 2 weeks ago. Should I pay the $100 difference, and upgrade to the GTX280? Or should I stick with my 9800 GX2?

Wouldn't it be correct to assume the GTX 280's performance will increase when ever nVidia gets some better drivers out?

Looks like we will have to pay a premium for the GTX 280 if we buy one right now. I'm sure the price will drop, but what I am stoked about is the fact that the 9800 GX2 price will drop even further pretty soon, and the GX2 pretty much out-performs the GTX 280.

Keep your GX2.

I am still inclined to think that this year's flagship was the 9800 GX2, unless a GX2 280 is planned for Christmas.
