What is going to be released next month? I haven't been keeping up with hardware releases all that much, so I am a bit out of the loop.

supposedly radeon 5000 series launching in july/autumn.. probably true, 4000 series launched last years july/autumn
20 bucks off 3 items. isnt something special
every item within it gets cheaper over time, you can manually reduce price, or you can take few, stick big stick with OMFGCHEAPSUPERHAWTBUYNOW thingie.. and pretend ur doing something special..
i know cuz i been working in that business ..
You don't get it , it is the Dragon ! A system of components that won't break your bank, yet give you amazing gaming pperformance. That was my point, sorry to be excited for the future of Hardware and gaming /sniffles
Solareus no worries. I see your point. Gaming hardware has become really cheap now and I for one think it is great. I recycled a few things from my old PC and bought some new componants from Newegg and Tigerdirect and have a system that runs everything on the market well for a little less than $400. Prices nowadays are so great compared to what they were not too long ago. I bought a $1200 386 and thought I was getting a deal years ago. lol
I found it quite funny that I can across this post, quite fitting I must say. My previous PC was an Intel P4, had 512ram. an ATI radeon 5200(256ram) AGP grafix card and it cost me $1600. I just, a few months ago, bought a new PC, check out the difference. Its an Intel DualCore 2.3g, 2gigs ram..160gb HD, an Nvidia 8600gx PCI grafix card(1g mem), 19' flat panel monitor........cost.......$570. OH! I forgot to mention that the dealer totally forgot to charge me for the Flat Panel monitor. Still though, the tower cost me $570.. YES I totally agree prices on PC hardware have dropped greatly and I,for one,, love it. Now I run any game on the market with ease.
Yeah what really surprises me is the price of graphics cards. I paid almost $500 for my ATI 9800 pro when it first hit the market (dont laugh >_>) and when I built this computer, I spent $119 on this ATI 4850 and it flys. I mean there are still cards that cost alot of money but nowadays you can get a cheap card that will run most things out there.
Glad I wasn't much of a gamer a few years ago.....
hehe, and in july , the 5000series Ati card will be coming out, most of them will have the new cooling system and hopefully be cloocked at 1ghz.

More importantly, be DirectX11.0 compliant and offer 40nm build process.
There is no need to buy anything but a budget GPU right now, as they will handle almost any game today (ie: HD4770 $99), then in just a few short months (november'ish) purchase new tech cards based on ATI or Nvidia's new archetecture. Being an advid OC'er and participating daily in discussions with tech heads, engineers and blogs it easy to understand what is comming and when to buy.
Anyone purchasing an SLI/Crossfire set up now or in the last few months are just ego-heads... not true tech gurus. Unless you use your system for things other than games, then they have some legitamacy. I have need of CUDA as I protein fold. I'm also a hardware hobiest and can dedicate a good portion of my disposable income to "stuff". Thus, my 3 computers and SLI set up. But single card GPU are cheap and perfectly suitable for high-end gaming (HD4890, etc)
Anyone else, should hold off till this holiday shopping season. The graphic cards then will be insane. if you can't wait, the Radeon HD4770 will hold you over till next summer where a good $150 card will shred current games.
