Oops, i ment a revision. But you never know what nvidia will do to stay on top!

Well, the 384-bit bus is permanent, retracing and rewiring everything is a long and lenghthy process and it COULD possibly be done with the 4-5 months between the launch dates of the R600 and 8800GTX, but its doubtful. The R600 will have the upper hand until nvidia releases the 8900GTX (or something like that) but then ATi will release the x2900XTX (or something like that) and itll just keep going. But for now, the R600 has the upperhand of 1GB GDDR4 and the 512-bit which technically equals 128GB/s of memory bandwidth. But remember, this is almost all pure speculation from the inquirer, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. The 8800GTX specs are more precise and more "official" if you get what i mean. But if ATi can pull off the R600 with good yields, its going to be one hell of a card. And it will raise hell on nvidia.

newegg is probably the best place to buy from.
And as for the brands, I've used asus and xfx and they both have been very good. Also heard that evga is great.

get a x1950pro, it should be only 200 bucks (USD), unless people (like newegg) decide to price gouge. The x1950pro is better than the 7900GT.

so basicly you have 500 dollars usd (close to this). There is a few good cards for this price, if you want to go nvidia go with the 7900, but personally get ATI, you get the x1950XTX Hops in of a price of 449.99. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814195024 Very good card of my opinion.

Iv changed my mind yet again! i will hold on to my 6800GS and just wait and see how much the 8800GTX is. seen as they will be like (from what iv Heard) twice as better as a 7800GT. also the support of DX10 and the unified shaders will set me up for the future
