EDIT: The exact card I'm talking about is the 512 OC version.

I was wondering whether anyone knows the maximum resolution for this card is?

Yep, it is pretty crazy. And the 8800GT is still a nice card, and you can't go wrong with getting one for $50.

I just bought a 8800gt oc for $50. Amazing what a difference a year makes. cheers

hehe, well just let us know when you have a date and or price

Also just one more little rumor I heard first-hand from someone earlier today: it looks like the revised 8800 gts / 8900 gt (my guess!) might be coming closer to the end of November, or even early December (which works out for you, I guess )
My source said that Nvidia just isn't able to manufacture enough product in time to beat (or meet) the RV670 to market... and they are also quite busy making gazillions of 8800 GT's (which are selling like absolute crazy).

the 8800GT does prove something alot of us suspected, the frame buffer cant be feed fast enough by the GPU. This quite obvious with the fact a 512mb 256bit card did on average alot better than a 320bit 640mb 8800GTS. The added shader's allowed it to use the framebuffer a little better, it also points to another fact worth noting, the 320bit, and 384bit, and the 512bit bus's on the highend cards might be to big for these cards to actully handle effectivlly untill they have more raw power in the GPU to feed the framebuffer.

OK thanks a lot man hopefully that "8900GT" will be available for sub 350 bucks If not well hehe, Id probably have to find some extra cash.

One more thing: although everyone is referring to the upcoming nvidia release as the 'revised 8800 gts' I think there is a strong chance they will end up changing the name (so too many people don't get confused with the similar models).
Maybe it'll end up being a 8900 GT?
I can't see them sticking with the 8800 GTS name.

Not too much is known. All the NVIDIA guys I talked to in California were pretty mum about it.
Besides the additional stream processors, it looks like the new g92 / 8800 gts will have a reduced 256 bit memory interface (contrary to my last post). So it looks like the new GTS will come in 512mb and 1 gig varieties.
The 1 gig 8800 gts should out-perform a current 8800 gtx by a decent margin, and should also be available for less.
It'll be pci-e 2.00, but that really isn't much of a big deal. It'll more be a factor a year+ plus from now. PCI-e 1.00 offers enough bandwidth for the next while with 16x pci-e lanes on your mobo.
By the way guys, also from I heard today from someone else, the RV670 (upcoming hd 3800 ati release) looks like it'll offer less performance than a 8800 GT, but will retail for about 50$ less.
For your situation axforts, you'll probably be most interested in the new 8800 gts 1 gb version.
NVIDIA will probably try to take some of the fire out of the launch of the RV670 by launching it on the same day. (Which is, according to SOME RUMORS, about 3 weeks away).
