How can you justify the cost of a Series 7 card? sure ok, GPU changes and lower latency maybe more pixel pipelines but the memory is still 256mb GDDR3 running around 1.2ghz and core GPU speed is just about the same infact my FX5950 was 475 at default. Where's the $600.00 value? it's going to get to the point where you're going to have to consider "hmmm...graphics card? or down payment for a vehicle?" they act like we suddenly got paid more. Excuse the frustration but the main intent for this thread is to see how many people out there feel the same way. I've always owned top of the line cards but ever since the Series 6 it's been way too ridiculous. It's not like you can say "I'll wait till series XX comes down in prices because, by time that happens it's because it's obsolete to modern games.
