Socket 754. 939 was still pretty expensive when I got my computer parts.

The performance is still great (and pretty comparable to 939). But anyways, lets not go anymore off topic.

Not really, money man. In fact ATI doesn't have anything planned to counter the 7800 GTX in the summer more or less. Nice try really.

ATI is lagging a bit in profits. And its founder is under investigation for financial insider trading.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=amaBIyaMAwjE

ATI Technologies, a computer-graphics chipmaker whose founder is being investigated for insider trading, lost C$1.65 to C$19.10. The 8 percent slide was the steepest in the S&P/TSX. Hans Mosesmann, an analyst at Moors & Cabot Inc. in New York, predicted weaker-than-expected sales and cut the stock's rating to ``hold'' from ``buy.''

well nVidia doesnt have any single card to combat the X850XT PE so they'll just switch turns for a while wont they

So? The larger percentage of graphics card profits lie in the mid-range and upper mid-range market, not the high-end market. Unfortunately for ATI, nVIDIA owns that area with the 6600 GT (the X700 Pro is the closest competitor and it sucks).
