If your machine can run games fine now, I think it's a far wiser idea to wait for the r600. The only reason why the 8800GTX seems like jesus is because it has no competition now. But when Buddha comes along with his r600 next year, the 8800 might not look so great anymore.

Ok, lets not get into another G80 vs R600 deal here But i will just point out the small fact, and dont call me a fanboy cuz i have no favorites of companies in any components, im still new so i dont have much on-hand experience. But by the time R600 does finally come out, who says G81 wont be out or follow in the coming weeks-month.

But, a new revision doesnt have to be that far behind R600 though, i didnt say at the same time, but very close, within a month or 2. And in that other thread it basically comes down to this. Buy each new revision that will beat the other companies, when that company will come out with another revision and it becomes the best. OR, stick with one company and wait for each 6 month revision.
