Default Anyboy have any idea?

Does anybody know when the 8900gx2, 8900gts and 8900gs are coming out? I have money set aside for an 8900gx2, but I wanna know how long I have to wait.

From what i've been hearing the card is probally not scheduled for a while. Rumors are floating around that the new cards will require the new PCI-E 2.0 interface which is just a higher bandwith version of the original PCI-E.

You may as well wait a bit until things are confirmed your 8800gts should be fine for now. I'd hold off for a new PCI-E 2.0 and good proven DDR3 board.
