yeah i'd rather have a one video card solution anyway. but if you already have the 8800gtx like yourself definitely sounds like a winner to me.

i can't wait for the 9800gtx.

When you buy a eVGA video card when the 90 day to use the Step Up program start?

I will pick up an 8800GTX most likely because i can't see it being twice as fast

Heres my 2 cents, since nvidia already has the strongest video card on the market in terms of gaming performance ( no arguments please, look at benchmarks in games ), if the 9800 gtx comes unchallenged in terms of performance you can SURE bet it won't be 650 when it comes out. More like 850 at least I'm guessing...

like heck retailers are going to sell it for MSRP when its brand new and the best you can buy...If you can wait, you will probably need to wait till early 2008 at least to get a decent deal on a 9800 gtx. The 8800 gtx however price will probably be cut in half in november, you decide whats the "better deal"

and to all those saying they want to SLI the 8800 gtx...I strongly advise against it unless you got the best cooling and lots of space. Heck 1 8800 gtx runs hot enough STOCK! I can't even fathom how much power two would take and the heat they would generate running overclocked! Even thought I have a 8800 gtx ill prob just wait 3-4 years till it gets old and sickly and get a 9 series card instead of going the SLI route, no matter how cheap 8800s are.

crap, i cant wait for those cards to come out and the 8800GTX prices to drop, then i can just buy another and go SLI on it.

I wonder if we will have to wait a long time for mid level 9 series cards like we did with 8 series. Or maybe there will be a 512mb version of the 9800gts thats cheaper and comes out later, assuming the gts was getting the 1gb of ram also. I just can't bring myself to spend that kinda cash on a vid card.

GTS will probs get the same kind of deal the 8800s got, like maybe a 768 and a 512 edition or something
