How fast do you think the mid-range card will be compared to current generation cards, and any likely price range of it?

My guess is there won't really be a mid level for a while. It will be just like the 8 series and only have high end cards for a while. This way they can keep using the 8800gt and 8800gts2 for the mids.

Well, I'm waiting to a make a build in January, Nvidia would be smart to release it around the launch of Intel's new quad-cores. I just hope that they do something about pricing... graphics cards are almost always the most expensive piece in the system. An 8800GT being equal to, or more expensive than a Q6600 doesn't make any sense to me at all. Graphics cards need to have a $300 cap for ultimate performance, I mean, $700-$800 for the Ultras when they first came out was ridiculous

As for D9E and D9P, those are probably codenames, like R600 and G92

Well this sucks for me, my step up expires in January. I'll probably pick up one of these cards in March or April now.

I hate to be a newb, But whats a step up?

How much of a price drop should the 8800s get when the first 9000s arrive?

Not sure on the price drops but I hope the 8800gt runs around 150-200 after 9 series comes out. And the step up is EVGA's step up program. You can trade in your evga card within 90 days to step up to a newer card and you pay the difference I think.

EVGA | Step-Up Program
