Wait for R700.

Until GX280 goes to 55nm, Nvidia simply cannot make a dual die GX280 variant to match.

If AMD/ATI get it out the door shortly, the R700 should be top dog for a quarter at least (maybe even until Q1 '09).

so much for tackling the high end with a monolithic core instead of a dual chip solution?

Well the 9800 GX2 is Nvidia's high end at the moment.

Have you actually read the reviews? The GX2 still wins most benchmarks, albeit by a small amount. For the most part the 9800GX2 is approximately equal to the GTX280, but is usually slightly faster.

the point is that gtx280 wasn't made for with a gx2 model in mind, i mean, just think about it: reduce the die to 55nm, thats -25% cost to produce the chip(half node reduction), only the chip, but lets just say it goes for the whole board so we'll have what? a dual gtx 280 that would cost 900$, BUY THAT! i really don't think the market is and ever will be ready for a single video card costing that much no matter how much the performance
