I know this is slightly offtopic, but I was considering upgrading around September or so, and I was wondering if you guys had any advice.
I currently have a Radeon 7500, so I'de be looking to upgrade to a 9xxx card. I notice that there is a drastic price difference between say a 9600 and 9800. Would this difference warrant a 150-200$ price increase? I certainly don't have money to waste, but I would prefer that I spend an extra few hundred now, instead of having to upgrade again in a year or so. Also, do you expect video card prices to come down considerable within the next month or two?
