    screw that..there goes my plans to wait. I cant wait untill Feb, holidays are completely over by the time these cards will be out. Guess I'll just have to really hope 8800GT or GTS prices drop to reasonable levels soon and pick one of those up to tie me over till then. Jan was ok but Feb is to long.
