I'm currently building a PC with the works, quad core processors, 4 gb of ram, and i was going to add either an 8800 gtx or an 8800 ultra. I of course do not want to waist my money so should I wait for the new 08 nvidia's or should I go ahead and purchase an 8800?

Since the upcoming 8800 GTS ver 2 should beat the 8800 GTX - and maybe even the Ultra - I'd hold off for one of those.

Or just grab two 8800 GTs for SLI. :D

Or just get one 8800 GT and use the step up program to get a 9800 GTX when they're out (That's if you buy from evga).

EVGA's step up program is only 3 months or so, isn't it?

I doubt the 9800 series will arrive in the near future...

As far as the benchmark(s) have shown, the 65nm GTS will have the performance of the GTX - Ultra (though, hear-say from only one review) on a 300$ price point - ofcourse probable gouging may push it past 350 - 400$, yet still cheaper compared to a 500$ GTX. So imo, being so close to a complete line-up rotation of GPUs, I'd wait until the 65nm GTS gets more than one rock solid pre/review and pricing quotes.

when is the new gts supposedly coming out?

You may want to wait until March - 9 series Geforce and both full ranges of Phenom and Penryn processors. For Q6600 you could get something with 1333FSB and 12Mb cache (with Intel).

March may seem a long way away - it really isn't!

Can we expect a price decrease in 8800GT when it's released? :D

Glad I stepped up from my 8800GTS 320 to the 8800GT. My 90 days would've been up December 12th. That's just cutting it too close and I probably would've missed it.
