NVIDIA's GeForce 7800 GTX Hits The Ground Running

AnandTech: NVIDIA's GeForce 7800 GTX Hits The Ground Running
One of the most impressive aspects of this launch is that the part is available now. I mean right now. Order it today and plug it in tomorrow. That's right, not only has NVIDIA gotten the part to vendors, but vendors have gotten their product all the way to retailers. This is unprecedented for any graphics hardware launch in recent memory. In the midst of all the recent paper launches in the computer hardware industry, this move is a challenge to all other hardware design houses.

For those looking for a new video card, you might want to wait a bit. With the release of the 7800 prices are already dropping. The 6800's have already dropped over 15% so hang out a bit for the prices to stabilize.

Anyone dropping 600 bills on a video card needs to have their priorities examined.. you can get entire-not-totally-dogcrap brandname PC's for that much money. I like to game as much as most geeks ... but damn

I agree completely. However I know one of our readers would disagree (cough, Alienware, cough!). The reason I posted it was I know Cartman was looking for a new card (midrange). And was letting him know to wait a bit for a better deal.

I'm with Wayne.

I will drop $300 MAX on a new GPU, and I am not a miser when it comes to game puter rig parts.

Then again, we know people who would drop $600+ on a GPU....
