I agree with the other posts here also.

Although I don't understand why the article says "for its launch later this month".... last I heard, its was going to be launched on the 15th, NOT later this month. Or did something change?

I wish it rock the 8800GT so we can have more options!

Yes, and so Newegg stops jacking up the prices by $50 over MSRP. This was supposed to be a mid-range card and they're trying to sell it at $300 again.
