Also, I have run ATi cards for 4 gens now and have supported their practices when they made sense to me. The new cards in 7XXX series are utter crap with little to no price/perf advantages after 1+ year of wait.
Really? I think the 7970 is much better than the 6970, the 7870 is much better than the 6870 and the 7770 is much, much better than the 6770. Where is the problem? That they are not giving them away?
