Looks like your going to have a gaming machine..

I'd love to have one of the 9 series, but you don't want it to bottleneck at all by staying with a 6200.. It wouldn't be to bad, but you wouldn't be able to play like Crysis or something until the 9 series card is in.

Direct X 10.1 is going to be pretty good when games start using it. For instance, Global Illumination (something thats only been possible with CPU rendering on 3D software) will be possible on the GPU, so light will bounce realistically to create real shadows. No more of these shadow maps, etc.

Can't wait to see the demo's for these cards.

hmmm... will they support dx11? any speculations as far as that goes? or will we be on the 11 series by time Microsoft comes out with the next OS (I believe its Longhorn atm, right?)

but I might get myself another stick of ram and a 8800gt(s?) then. I bet DDR3 will be pretty mainstream then, I hope.
