and then "Oh hey ATI will come out with a card in a month or two... I'll buy that card too" so now you wont even be using your 8800's to 1/4 of there potential and you spend anoth 1300 bucks on a pair of ATI's...

youre a complete asshat

Thats why he should give them to me for $87.35 shipped


Anyway Bob94571, lots of people have that mentality,
Lets look at someone who has say a C6 Corvette
its makes 400 HP @ 6,000 RPM.

Do they every use this car for whats its made to do/ Road Race/ Drag Race/

no they go shopping, eat at fancy restaurants, ect...

they will rarely put the car in the 6,000 RPM range..

And when the next latest and greatest Vette comes out, they will buy that one..

Its just all money

Seriously dude...you've spent more on your computer than I have for most of my life.

You're either rich, or you're dumb. Maybe both.
