How much do you spend on Video Cards?

I think it is between 500 and 800 for the best single GPU card, of course, there are exceptions like Titan.

Makes me wonder how much GTX 880 will cost~

Below $300. If I'm making a budget, below $200. I went top end once, while the power was nice it was just over kill and I won't spend that much anymore.
Only two console brands on the market: Nintendo and Xboxstation. There used to be three, but sadly the PlayStation identity died with the PS2.

First graphics card I got for gaming was <$100. (Nvidia 9600 GSO 512 MB)

Second one I got was about right at $100. (Radeon HD 6770 1 GB)

Third one I got, the one I currently have, was $650. (GTX 780)

So, my average wouldn't really be accurate. I'll wait until I'm not satisfied with the GTX 780 to decide what I should be spending on graphics cards.

I have always bought the middle of the line Nvidia cards, 8600GT, 260, 460, 660. This time I bought a 2nd 660 and I will never go cheap again. Just like the constant 60 fps and eye candy. The x60 cards have been such great price/performance cards, but I should be able to dump a little extra at 29.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

My 770's the most I've spent so far on a GPU, I bought that while I was staying in the States for $400.

I'll pay whatever I need to upgrade my PC don't have a limit... just bought GTX 780 a month ago

I used to buy in at the $200-$250 pricepoint, but recently I splurged for a $400 GTX770. While I can feel the power, not enough games make full use of it for it to be worth double at the moment
