Default Next nVidia series due?

Does anyone know when the next nvidia cards are to be released? I'm thinking about buying a 8800gt, but there are newer cards coming out anytime soon? If so, do you think the price on the 8800gt would drop by much, or should I just buy now? I'm not really in that much of a hurry though.

The 9000 series has already been released, so I'm guessing you mean something NEWER? If so, I don't know.

The 8800GTS has seen a price drop, and both the 8800 GT and GTS are great performers. The 8800GTX actually outperformed the 9800GTX in some tests if I remember correctly.

Get an 8800GT/GTS. You'll see a big improvement over your 7600.

Grab a 8800gt, they are a great deal for the price. They have come down in price

I heard rumors about a 9900, but the 8800GT's and 9600GT's are cheap right now anyway.
