And if the 8800GTS goes for $449 a piece, plus add the shipping and tax for the two GTSs at $449 a piece, I could easily afford two of those.

Hmm... I will probably just settle for the two GTSs. That is gonna' be such a huge leap in performance for me any ways.
If i were you & cant afford 2 GTXs , i'll just get a single 8800GTX for the time being & either SLI it later or replace with the next refresh (8900GTX perhaps) [read fineday's previous comment].

The upgrade to the 8800GTX will be very sweet.

Actually, I'm betting that the 8900GTX will be smaller in overall size, cooler, better performing, and will consume less power.

As such, what I'm *considering* doing is this:

Purchasing two 8800GTSs the week of the 18th. Then, when G81 is released, sell both 8800GTSs for as much as I possibly can, and get two 8900GTXs.

It's crazy enough it just might work.

You also have to remember right now I'm on a rig with an Athlon64 3400 (s754), 2GB DDR500 @ DDR400 CAS2, and two 7500GTs.

Even if I just got two 8800GTSs, that'd be lightyears better than what I'm running now.

I sooooooooooo can't wait!

Heh my card can't even run 3dmark03, and my processor is old as hell, so c2d 6600 + 8800gts here I come! I wonder how much the quadro version of these cards will go for? I'm really getting into 3d sudio max and rendering times are just horrible on my current setup(the c2d will hopefully bring a huge improvement), and it lags quite a bit when doing something a tad more advanced, so I hope I'll be able to softmod the 8800gts into a quadro like you could with the 6800gt.

So far we're seeing double the performance of a 7900GTX? Is that lower than what you were anticipating?

Okay, tired of FEAR for now.

I'm gonna' go old-skool...

Some slammin' 4x4 Evo2 FTW!!!

Think dual 8800GTSs could handle that game?

I actually wonder how well these cards will hander older titles, if they'll even be able to play them. One way to find out I guess.
