Talking 8800 GTS, worth getting now?

I have 500-600 Canadian bucks to spend, and no doubt the 8800 GTS 640mb is top-notch card, but is it worth getting now or will ATI offer a better card for the same price in April?

Wait off on your purchase for now, AMD/ATI's event in Tunisia will kick off late April, you can make your decision a week or so afterwards after all the good reviews and pricetags are in

we shall see, im excited either way, i sure as hell dont have enough money for either, but im still excited to see what they come up with

Sure, get it now, it's DX10, great reviews. Good a time as any. AMD or NVIDIA, you're still getting a good card either way. Just pick one and press "Add to Cart".

Just wait for ATI's new card, whoever has the performance crown, the crappier one will have to have a lower price. Also nvdia is gonna make 8600's which are like 7900's with direct x 10 support and a slightly better 8900 with a faster clock and ddr4 memory. We'll just have to wait to see how things turn up.

i'm personally an Nvidia guy, and i do have the GTS. I love it. Easily one of the best buys i ever made. If you like Nvidia, and you want great performance, get it.
