    Stop it! All these leaks and rumors are making my decision of buying a gtx460/5850 harder and harder.

    Do i buy a 460? Or will the price drops of the 5850 due to the 6000 series releasing affect it more than like 10%? Will the 6000 series provide a host of new improvements and actually be a lot better than the 5000 or the gtx 400 series!.

    OMG, AMD please release the details and benchmarks already! So i can actually decide .

    There will always be something better just round the corner... just buy a 460, they're good cards.

    Exactly. And even if you do know the release date, it'll probably be pretty much a paper release, with heavy price gouging for the first few months...

    Sure buy one, if you think you won't regret it. Fact is, if you wait less than 2 months, both the 460 and 5850 will be cheaper after these new cards are released so if you think you will regret it...I'm sure you can hold on another 2 months because after that we're talking at least a year before anything else new arrives.

    If the HD6000 series is being released soon then I would wait as it should hopefully mean price cuts on existing graphics cards if it is faster. I am interested to see how fast the replacement for the HD5770 will be.

    Hey, not trying to be one of those jerks who blurts out "get your facts straight"

    Just a heads up though that
    "Whistler and Blackcomb don't seem to fit with the Island-theme as both are mountains - and popular ski resorts - in the Canadian Rockies."

    Actually Whistler and Blackcomb are part of the Coastal Mountain range in B.C. which has no connection to the Canadian Rockies bordering the other side of the province.

    Also, Seymour is a part of that mountain range.

    Just a heads up
