R600 is supposed to come out next month, this is their direct fire back at Nvidia's 8 series.

I believe the one that will beat a 8800GTX is called an X2900XTX or something. I can't remember now though.

Then the one that will fire back at Nvidia's 8900GTX when they release it is an X2900XTX2 which is just like the 7900GX and 7950GX having two chips on one card.

I've got my eyes on a R600.

Screw the 8900

Stick with a company... buy its products... and don't sell your comic book collection for 5+ fps over your current card

It's back and forth... and way too often to give a crap. Just buy a card and be happy.
