Default Geforce 9800 GTS

Hey, I was looking to buy a geforce 8800GTS as my new gfx card, but decided to do some research before pulling out the CC. I'm glad I did, it seems the 9series geforce is coming out really soon, but I couldnt find a definite date.

Does anyone know when the 9series is coming out? From a legit source?

There's no definite date yet. On wikipedia, it says the expected release date is February 14:

I find that date hard to believe, I'de think that nvidia would tell everybody a month or two before they release new gfx cards to build up some hype.

I think i'm going to wait though, looks like my Radeon x850 will have to do for a few more months.

Supposedly the 9800 GX2, which is supposed to be about 40% faster than an 8800Ultra, will start at $450. I don't believe that though...especially with retailers jacking up the prices for the initial demand. $600 might be more realistic, but hey, we can hope right?

Am I right though, when I think that the 9000 series isn't really a new series at all, but a side step from the 8000 series? Or is there a card coming out in the 9000 series that is actually a step forward?
