Default Buy a mid-range card now or wait?

I've been looking at some 9600XT's, but I keep hearing things about the 6600
and the X700. Would it be worth waiting for AGP versions of these cards?
(Both for their quality or a drop in price on other cards).

wait for the 6600gt will smack that 9600xt upside the ass and will perform
2 or 3 times faster I wont be pricey it will be considered the new
midrange cards. If you up grade now your card wont last you much long in
graphic intensive gaming.


Gotcha.

Not a bad slogan for it, unless they go with: "Says to the 9600XT: 'Bitch,
make me a sandwich' "

9700 pro is the best bang for the buck and already smacks the 9600XT.

I think that 9700pro preamble has been floating around in cyberspace for a
year and a half, finally found a post it could bind itself to.

I remember reading in the post about X700 awhile ago. I think X700 is PCI-E only.
