i have taken a moment to step back and i'm finding it rather hard to believe that people are paying $600 for a video card i know enthusiasm exists.. but majority is the heart of an industry and the majority isnt capable of purchase. it doesnt look like much around here on these forums.. but some are UK paid and i know illinois just got a huge minimum wage increase (like a whole $2) what used to cost me $5 to eat is now costing me $8-$10-$12 sure americans could print more money and make it less valuable and be on par with UK.. it's not a matter of concern unless you're not being upgraded with the rest of the people. todays $600 is yesterdays solid $450 and i want it to slow down. everybody got a $2 raise and all i got was like an extra $20 Per Month. (it's great motivation to get a good paying job) i'm just saying prices have tipped triple and theres no self respect left in our society to increase further.
