    Im planning on gettin a Gigabyte Radeon X800 Pro Graphics accelerator card 256Mb DDR3 for NZ$853.88 including gst

    I know it may sound extremely expensive (which it is) but take note that its in New Zealand dollars.

    Should i take this now (or within this next month) or wait until the end of the year... Im sure the price wont drop by much...and even if it does its only going to be about $100 which doesnt bother me.

    I dont know any cheap companies that ship to NZ

    Any recommendations? Will this card be a massive improvement from my current 1

    That doesn't sound too expensive to me.

    I suspect something new is probably being conjured up in the labs of ATI and Nvidia already.. so I guess you could buy it if you want to show off =P (I'd rather buy it at the end of the year or so =P)
