NVIDIA has launched their 8800 GT this is a DX 10 midrange card that currently performs about as well as the higher end 8800GTS but costs significantly less. The suggested retail is between $200-250 for a 512 MB model. Don’t go buying these on newegg.com at the moment since they’re gouging the early adopters. Fry’s, Bestbuy and any regular retailer should have these in the $220 or so range if you can find one in stock.
I’m considering getting one for my system but I’m not sure I want to fork over the cash quite yet.
