Why upgrade to the latest series? - Page 5

post #41 of 60
My 480 replaced my old setup (SLI 280's) and that was a partial nightmare at times with drivers, and every game after that looked I would say, a lot better then before.

I would like to replace my 480 with a 590, simply because I wouldn't mind trying a single card dual gpu solution.

Just because you think it is ripoff or overpriced doesn't mean everyone thinks it is. Value is subjective and the more money you have the less you value each dollar. Example, most Americans would gladly pay the $.59/lb for organic bananas instead of paying $.39/lb for conventional. The price difference in % terms is large but in nominal terms is small relative to income. You can't just say the organic bananas are a ripoff because they cost 50% more than the conventional. To someone with the disposable income the difference between $500 and $150 might be as negligible as the price difference between conventional and organic bananas to the average American consumer.

While your point is valid, it does not follow that buying a higher powered graphics card is a "waste" of money. People value different things. I do not need a car with 265 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque, but I would never consider the money I spent on my BMW 335d a waste, even though a Toyota Corolla would have done the job at half the cost. The price difference in negligible to me and the added HP and features are worth the cost IMO.

If they weren't in the money making business, you probably wouldn't have a graphics card at all, or at least not one even remotely as powerful as you have now. The profit motive encourages innovation, you should not be so critical of it.

Maybe they wanted Eyefinity, or simply had the money to burn. What does it matter?

OCN's slogan isn't the Pursuit of performance for nothing, new tech has many advantages. Whether it's die shrinks, less power consumption, more stream processors, and even factory overclocks if you will. I could've stuck with my crossfire'd 5850's but I wanted to go to a single card solution for less power consumption and noise and with some games it performs better too. Everyone has their personal reason for upgrading or even side-grading, don't post a butthurt rant in the wrong section.
