I'll wait until the price drops down a bit and see what other Nvidia cards come out.
Play better if I get lag/stuttering or play better just because they can?

Either way, DirectX11 is a superset of DirectX 10. So, GPU's for Direct X 10.1 or 10 will ignore all features of 11 and use the sets they understand. Although that kind of defeats the point of DirectX 11 games in the first place if the game engine is built properly for 10/10.1 . . . .

Jensen has just finished his keynote and at the end of it it showed off a Fermi GF100 card and announced three monitor 3D stereo. He also said that Fermi is in full volume production as we speak and it should launch in Q1 2010.

We asked one of the many VPs around us and we learned that when Jensen says Q1 2010 he means Nvidia’s fiscal Q1 rather than real people’s Q1. Nvidia’s Q1 starts in January and ends on April 30th so the worst case scenario for Nvidia is to launch a card sometime in April.
Fudzilla - Nvidia Fermi to come in Nvidia’s Q1
Well either way, an extra month will make no difference. It was said to be released last October originally, I'm sure everyone who wants one, including me, can wait another month.

I agree with Frostmourne here as well.

i soooo want to upgrade tio the newest and best GPU, but the simple fact ..

My 4890 Vapor-X runs all my games with out any problems at all at 1080P.

So guess Ill wait a bit longer, or at least till DX11 becomes more of a common or the 4890 begins struggling. just can't warrant the upgrade yet :-/

I'd realistically expect to see them 'commonly available' and at 'stable' pricing around June/July.

I'll most likely hold off buying one until end of May/beginning of June for drivers to hopefully be properly stable and when I have some spare money to throw in to my PC.

I wouldn't know because I get zero lag or stuttering even on max settings, but mostly it's because I can just purchase another GPU and increase gaming frame rates without any need to upgrade the rest of my system. Although the cost to performance ratio may not add up.

About the only way to induce lag is to use more than 4X AA which makes very little difference in visual appeal anyway. It's going to be awhile before the DX11 is mainstream but better frame rates is always good.

my 8800GT also does the job fine. As for nvidia making flawless drivers? I think not.
