Nvidia's GeForce 8800GTX and GTS are new DX10 cards out.  These cards are going for about $700 to $800 currently.  Probably better to wait to get one of these since there are very few games and applications out that use DirectX 10 and the price drop will be well worth the wait.

Seven months later... I would have to say the 8800 GTS cards now offer a nice value. I picked up a 640mb 8800 GTS for right at $400 a few months back. Using the old 3dmark03 benchmark that I still had loaded my score more than doubled compared to my old 7800GTS.

 

P.S.

If you are in the market for one of these cards make sure your power supply can handle it before you just blindly buy something.
