Will Nvidia pump out AGP cards of 8800? And a n00b question:

What will be the major differences between the 8900 GTX, 8950 GX2 and the current 8800 GTX?

That sounds a bit like a n00b question to me. Why dont you just do some research, it is likely to be infinitely more reliable than what some random person says on here.

I honestly don't see them putting out a 8800 series card in AGP. Maybe a 8600. Definately a 8300 (or 8200...whatever they do for naming...). AGP is rapidly going the way of the floppy disk. (extinct...) :D

As far as differences on new cards...check out the rumors forum section...plenty of food for thought there...

If you have the money for a 8800 then surely you must have the money for a compatible motherboard. At least thats the way NVIDIA would be thinking.

I'm building two gaming rigs and I want my current rig to atleast try to keep up.

For high end cards it'll probably be up to the manufacturers of the cards, not nVidia. ATI just released the X1950 Pro, which is pretty much mid range these days. I reckon there will be mid/low range 8x00 AGP cards, but not high end, unless Gainward (they did their own 7900GT AGP card but called it 7800GS) or anyone else takes the initiative.
