  1. With the recent release of the Radeon HD 5600, 5500 and 5400 series, AMD has managed to fill the gap in almost every price segment of the discrete graphics card market. However, the company is known to have one more card in the pipeline that will fit between the $150 Radeon HD 5770 and $300 HD 5850 both in terms of price and performance.

    I want nVidia to release their GPU's so the 5870's, 5970's, 5850's will come down in price. You know, the cards we actually want, not these stopgap cards they keep releasing.
  3. Just cave and by an ATI card, Mr. Fanboy.

    I think good competition is essential for buying the right product at the right price; and right now it is not the case.
  5. Agreed. The 4830 of the last generation was total crap. It filled in somewhat of a gap, but faced stability and huge image quality issues. Didn't overclock well either. The 9800 GT was still cheaper and still a better deal. You know you'll regret buying the fillgap, especially when you see the real deal like the 5850 or 5870 2GB under $200 in 6 months.
