    Will the launc of direct x 10 cards reduce the prices of dx 9 cards?
    and if i wait till the launch of dx10 cards, will the wait be worth it ?
    that is will the prices of dx 9 cards reduce considerably?

    Offcouse prices will gradually come down, not very abruptly.
    I wouldn't advise you to buy a Dx 10 card before Feb/March, and incase you wanna buy from India, it would be best to wait till May-July 2007, if you can wait then it is worth it. Else buy something today and sell it a few months down the line/

    Hope you are not waiting to buy a DX9 card after the launch of DX10. It would be simply a good waste of money.

    the launch on DX10 cards will only be in the high end....so I don't think the prices or mid range card will drop..much....

    if you got cash then spend one a 6600 GT or 7300 GT, it would be advisable to get a dx10 card in may/ june as prices wud have stabilized by then. in india prices will be much higher for the 8800gtx and gts.

    dx 10 cards' success depends on vista's success .... if vista rox then dx 10 cards will b available at an affordable price

    If Microsoft decides to backport DX10 to Win XP then DX10 cards will have a gr8er chance to suceed.Cuz i dont think many ppl will shift to Vista after its released.It'll take sometime for the prices to drop here in India.Me too waitin 4 DX10 card cuz i'll be shifting to Vista once its officially out.
