^ really keep going i'm just really want to know what people think of each card thats out and coming out over the next few weeks / months

anyways i already know about the 9800 being a OCed version of the 8800 and the price to performance is minimum (barely £10 between the 2 at times)

Agreed.

That is the only reason I got the (eVGA) 9800GTX, I was going to go with 9600GT then I heard whispers of the GT200 coming out in July. Turns out we only have a few weeks left now since it will be mid June. Didn't they announce it as June 18?

So, since I had sold my 8800GT I needed a new card and figured....why not?

if the prices are very cheap i might pick up a Q9xxx or Extreme Edition since the Q6600 are getting outdated

As of the q3 price drop the only 65nm cpu left on the market will be the q6600. They'll be dropping the price on the q9650 and 9550 and discontinuing the 9300 and 9450.
