Worth the wait?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about buying a new graphics card, probally the 7800gt or the gtx. But i was wondering if i should wait for Dx-10? When is it soppused to be coming out and will the cards be a ridiculous amount of money?

Thanks

Mike

It really depends if you play alot of games. The 6800 is a good gpu it should hold you over unless you can't wait till early 2007. As of now cost hasn't been predicted so no one can really say. But if your going to wait till DX10 comes out you can just save money and not worry about it.

I'd wait. Sit on what your got for 9 months, then when DX10 comes out you'll be sure you have the cash to get the new hardware. Heck, I'll probably get a new system for the occasion. (My current baby is gonna turn 4 in June)
