I feel any 8 series GPU are excellent for gaming. But the 9 series, I found some news on it, as this came out of the Nvidia forums:

NVIDIA Forums > Geforce 9 series codenamed G92

nvidia has yet to make an official statement to even acknowledge a 9series.

Just the first post, that's it. He's got the specs laid down so I figured it's got to be based around those figures.

No, the HD2900 hardware wise is not superior. Nvidia and ATI DX10 video have completely different architecture, that why it is difficult to compare them

Geforce 8800GTX have more texture unit than HD2900XT. And the stream processor in 8800GTX are only 128 but they more efficient because G80 can co-issue one MAD and one MUL instruction per clock to each of its 128 stream processors. ATI stream processor can't do that

I've found a 1gb 2900XT for 200 quid so I think I'll end up going with that since its such a steal...and I'm pretty sure I'll be satisfied with its performance.

There is most definitely a 9 series coming up.

They've even run 3dmark06 already on the G92 (midrange chip) which scored around 10k....although it's been said the test is fake and it's just speculation.

Maroon do you even know what it means to make MUL and MAD instructions at the same time? parallelism is great but you are the first person i have seen touting that as a feature. could it be that the improvement is negligible
