If what people are saying is true and the 9800gtx is just a Tri-SLI capable 8800gts g92, then wouldn't be less powerful than the 8800gtx and wouldn't that also explain the lower price than the 8800gtx?

Smart choice. Maybe you should just get two 9600gt's in the meanwhile.

Well the GT is spoken for ATM, but i think i may end up getting 3 9800GTX's

Supposedly tri-sli is supposed to scale really well on the 9800GTX.
