Default The new line of graphics cards

I know there is no set date for these, but when should we expect them? I had been under the impression that it would be Julyish, but I saw someone say October.

The reason I need to know is because someone whom I'm going to help build a rig for is waiting for the new cards thinking they are coming in July, but if they aren't going to be here in July, he should just build now.

EDIT: most articles point at Q4 for nvidia and late Q3 for ati

speculation is far and wide, I would say late Q3 as waffle hammer suggested but with the usual rumors floating around i'm not quite sure how much better they'll be, but surely an improvement

Yeah, I read some articles saying the earliest for Ati would be late July, but I found an article from a month ago saying Nvidia was delayed to January.
