As you said it probably won't be shipped with retail computers as a standard for at least another year. And by that point prices will have dropped significantly, and the 9 series will be out. Thus allowing you to pay a but-load less for that coveted 8800.

Yeah, that's sorta old. I was planning on the 8900GTX when everyone thought that was going to be the next card.
