Any idea how much these babies are going to be going for?

Stupid me just bought a ATI Radeon 9800 pro 4-5 months ago. It is still a great card, but prob should have waited.

Figured I would update this for the latest news.

First, ATI has responded (and will most likely beat Nvidia to market) with the X800.
Every review from the major review sites says the x800 beats the 6800 ultra in most tests.

And in other news, if you do go Nvidia for this generation of cards, don't go for the 6800. Wait for their next release (probably the 6900 ultra is my guess looking at previous generations). The 6800 requires a 480 watt power supply (very very few of you will have one) and two seperate power connections. They're in the process of fixing this issue, but why pay $500 for something that isn't done?

Yeah... ATI did a good job hiding the X800 but they are still using older tech. Also if you read up on some of the game that are coming out they are using the Nvidia drivers... Still can't wait to see how that turns out.
