indecision: 8800 gts now or 8900 variety later on..

im running a 6200 at the moment with a 37 inch 1920x1080 westinghouse. i was gunna go with an r600 but i hear there a real mess right now (big heating/power issues)

so i need help deciding whether i should just get a 280 dollar 320 gts or wait for a new card to come out (even though theres almost no info on anything nvidia..)

thanks for any tips

I don't think nVidia will release a refresh/new SKU until ATI can get out a card that beats the 8800U...which doesn't look to be for a while

tbh get an 8800GTX or 8800GTS

Yeah! The 8800s are one awesome series of cards!

And will be a HUGE jump from a 6200.

I don't beleive there is going to be an 8900. From what I've read, Nvidia is pulling another "6000 Series" and is skipping from the 8800 to the 9000 Series.

Id go for the GTS 640mb for those resolutions.

Also what will the generation after the 9 series be ? 10 series ? then 11 series ?

nah, i think they might do what ATi did, and go onto X series, or somthing similar

they got 9600 9700, 9800, then it was X300, X400, X600 X800, X850, X1800 and so on

I'd got for a 8800 now if you're in the market for a new card. I'm holding off on mine simply because my wife will cut off my lovesacks if i spend any more money (just bought a 40" LCD lol).
