There does appear to be a 55nm GPU refresh coming from NV soon. Best guesses are that there will be no noticeable performance/price change as the primary reason seems to be to just increase yields per die. (NV is in a real cash crunch right now, especially with their laptop chips failing everywhere)
I just upgraded from a 8800GTX to a EVGA baseline 260-216.
now I run everything at 1900x1200 high quality with AA. Before I need to dial setting/resolution down to keep the frame rate reasonable and not have the card overheat.
Skip the 9800 series.
2.4gz CPU is a little low for the current A-list titles.
Go Google for specific card reviews that match up may of the titles you/she are interested in.
