Default Inquirer: 8300 GS/GT and 8600 GT/Ultra.

New Nvidia product speculated.

8600 GT/Ultra.

I'm loving the prices, can't wait for the benchmarks.

P.S. - I don't think the HSF on there is going to be cut off, lol. Atleast...I hope not.

That's a nice line up. The evga 8800 gts for $400 on newegg with $30 MIR is probably gonna end up being my choice though.

Yeah, that Ultra is calling me, lol.

Anyone else really think that the extra memory on the 640MB 8800GTS is worth the extra $100, or 33% more in the price?

That sounds to good to be true. I mean 7600gt just got down into that price range so I would be really surprised to see a 8600gt for $129. Be great if those prices are what they launch with though, I'd get a 8600 ultra

That'll be AWESOME if those prices come out that way, I doubt they will but it'd be nice since I'm about to buy a vid card.

Lol @ guys not believing Inquirer.

At release, the prices will probably be higher. Look at the Estimated price on the 8800GTX; $599. It was $670 when it came out and has now dropped to $570. The prices will hit those levels within a few weeks.
