What is up with the 8800GT? Ive heard rumors that it is BETTER than the GTX and will outperform it for 250-300$? Im about to build a system and if this is true I dont want to blow my money on a GTX.

Sounds like a real leg puller to me. Where on earth did you hear/read such a ridiculous statement?
i know it doesnt make sense but there are alot of articles about this if you google it. I dont really believe it but I'm being as careful as I can.
OK, did a bit of checking, as you said there were rumors, but of it besting some GTSes, NOT GTXs. I only saw one bench comparing it to the 8800 Ultra on Futuremark and it's about 17% less performance than that, which is impressive. [AA test]8800GT VS. 8800 Ultra, scores out! - VR-Zone IT & Lifestyle Forum! Here's another but it's not a very good example as they only use a measly 1280x1024 res and don't say what settings: inCrysis Crysis Forums / 8800GT(G92) 3DMark03/05/06 Score What I am excited about is it employs the G92 GPU, so the rumors of 8900s and 8950s using a G84 releasing soon may not be true and all the sooner we may see the 9800GTX, which is what I'd like to get.
All you can really go by on the GT for now until we see some more practical benches is it's specs and how they compare to other 8800s.
As you can see the memory bandwidth is less than all of these cards and the onboard memory capacity only better than the 8800GTS 320MB. Still though it should prove to be their best value card to date.
thanks for the research but ill probably still be going with a GTX. its still a good card and itll do everything i want it to.
Well of course, if you can afford a GTX go that way. I was only pointing out the GT looks to be a good value card. Personally though I would wait until the GT releases or even other Nvidia cards as well because the current prices on existing hardware is bound to drop with such cards coming out.
is there an exact release date for the GT? (ill probably hold off buying my GTX till then to see if prices do go down)

I'm pretty sure the GT was supposed to compete against AMD's new lineup which is for the midrange market, not the high end making the 8800GTX the ongoing king of the high end market.

Indeed, nOe, as the price would indicate it's merely a mid-range card, though next gen mid range with that G92 GPU. One look at the benches indicates it can hang even with an 8800GTX at 1280x1024. So, largely it depends on what card you compare it to and at what resolutions/settings. Even those using 19" 1440x900 res displays may not notice a lot of difference depending on settings.
The cards I'd like to see it compared to are the 8800GTS 320 and 640. There are already plenty of 8800GTS owners upset that they paid as much as they did after seeing the GT results, even though they haven't owned their cards very long.
i heard that nvidia was planning to launch a "high-end" card before crysis was to come out. Any chance of a better card than the GTX or do you think the GT will be the main card here? (maybe the "high-end" card they were talking about is the rev. 8800GTS 65nm?)
