Nvidia always starts off their processor naming scheme with High numbers for High-end cards.
If the 8800GTX were actually named 8100GTX, and a slower card were released, but it was called the 8200GTX, that would make it seem like the new card was actually more powerful than the previous one. Sure, the alphabet soup near the end of the 7900s was annoying, but necessary.
The really interesting thing will come with the GeForce 9 series. GeForce 9800GTX anyone? People will definately be buying the 9800Pro over the 9800GTs or 9600GTs, haha.
