    Should I wait or get a Grafiks Kard now?!?!?!?!?

    I have been considering many options.
    i have no idea when some prices will drop or if they will but i can tell you this, i can't hardly wait to get rid of my 2.5 year old Diamond Stealth s540 which sucks for openGL and has only purely direct3d support.
    i tell you i really can't wait to get rid of it.
    i have been to tom's hardware reviews site and sharkeyextreme and considered many things and the bench mark tests score Elsa's Gladiac with NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS 32mb ddr ram.
    it performs great and at settings of 32 bit and 1024x780 it gets over 70 frames/sec. mind you your eye only catches just less than 30 but its good to have over 100 if possible and this card deliveres on Quake III some 110 frames/sec on 800x600 32bit. which is quite enough of detail i think.
    i will say i am hooked.
    but there is the prophet and the other companies that make the cards with NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS so which to buy?????
    and why buy in bundle for so much when i just want the card.
    anyone here have suggestions about price waiting or whether it will not make difference if i buy it now or in 2 months.
    i really struggle to find good price on theses and so i wonder if they will drop since GeForce 3 is out and 4 is on the way.
    so should i wait long or how long?

    just missed it
    it was I believe an opportunity of a lifetime
    i live in Canada so i couldn't use the opportunity.
    GeForce 2 GTS 32 ddr ram by VisionTek went on a UBID auction for $93 and less. out of 16 people 8 have grabbed the new graphics card at this auction. it just ended.
    and just to add till 6 pm tomorrow in california time, closes the auction of 16 new Geforce 3 64 ddr cards and currently it sits on $59 and its all at UBID. ....man i wish i lived in the states.

    hope some of you are taking advantages here.
    at CNET.com lowest prices are no where as competiting as the UBID prices
