ugh the 1070 still hasn't come down but the 480 was just released and it's not super impressive. it's like 970 level performance which is the card I would've gone with if I hadn't decided to wait for other cards to come out. so I'm gonna scrape together some money for a 1070 in the name of future proofing and making a good machine
