I echo these words. Now is not a good time to buy a GPU. I know you might 'need' something "right now", but I strongly advise you to hold off. If you really have to, maybe pick up a cheap Fermi card on Ebay or something; I saw some GTX 460s going for $70 the other day. One of those will serve well enough for the short time until the market settles.Chrispy_ wrote:There's (...) the loom of Mantle, and GCN-optimised games coming soon that will leave Nvidia scrabbling for traction.

These days I don't find myself needing to/wanting to afford to keep up with the newest best graphics, although I can appreciate it. One other thing worth mentioning is that I would MUCH rather play games slightly turned down on my new monitor than maxed out on my old 1080p, don't know if that helps you at all.
