Great review. NVIDIA seems to be pushing really hard recently. Ati has kind of taken the backseat to them.

No. NVIDIA aren't pushing hard enough.
The 9800 GTX is basically an 8800 GTS 512.

I hear its really worth it to just get the 8800 series, as the 9800 doesn't hold much more

9800 is not even close to the advancement we should've seen. Really in a lot of ways Nvidia has backtracked on the 8800GTX. Everything new since then is just cheaper more efficient parts. No real new and more powerful series. I guess they're planning something big for a new series though to waste the 9000 series name instead of just going 8900GTX like it should be.
