I'd say just get the GTX. There is no set release to my knowledge for the 9 series. Even if there was, Your system will barely be able to use the full potential of the 88. My system bottle necks my 88 like crazy.

He said GTX, not GTS. The GTX only comes in 760MB.

You can grab your 8800GTX, but I heard that the ATI drivers has been releasing some better drivers and now use the card way much better than before. If that's the case, then I'd spare cash to grab a 2900 XT.

I did hear that the 2900XT's reason for being slower, was due to a new way of anti aliasing, that would prove to be in time, better and faster than Nvidia's release in Direct X 10 settings.

You can pick up an 8800GTX for under 300 now, at least, where I've looked
They are website manufacturers versions, but I don't see because of that, while they'll overclock less etc. No different parts are used
