Is it just me, or do the 9800GTX/GTS/GT cards seem to be taking forever to arrive?

I've been waiting ages for a top notch graphics card and I've even got UT3 installed and waiting!

Anyone else itching to get a 9800GTX/GTS/GT card?

Yeah it's the 1PCB approach that I'm looking for - that GX2 is a bit too crazy for my liking!

I kind of figured that because of the model numbers you mentioned. Are you very pro nvidia, because the ati 3870 X2 is a very nice card and it's on 1 pcb.

My battle right now is two pronged. I always go mid range and was wondering whether to go with a 8800GS vs 9600GT vs 3870 vs 3850. Also I'm wondering whether or not I even game enough on my pc to even pay that much money for a card.

No, I'm not against ATi at all. The only problem is that I know very little about ATi cards and which ones are good/bad and what can be expected from the next gen of cards. If someone says to me that a new card is like the leap from a Geforce FX to Geforce 6 then I know what that means, but unfortunately I have no idea what ATi have been up to for the last decade or so!

What's good bang for buck from ATi at the moment then?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
