I ended up not doing anything, just sitting and waiting...

And is the wait now over with the new 8800gt? Will it be able to handle 1920x1080? (To put that in perspective for you non-widescreen gamers, 1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels, 1600x1200 = 1920000 pixels. Difference between 1920x1080 and 1600x1200 = 153000 pixels.)

Yes, the 8800GT would be your best bet for the price. If shipments are as tight as it is in canada, your going to have a difficult time getting any though, these cards are in high demand right now, so their prices have been inflated.

I ordered one from AusPCMarket, the Gainward version for AUD$345 including postage. It's going to be sweet :) Mind you, I ordered on Tuesday, paid on Wednesday, and probably won't get it till mid-next week. Oh, I just double-checked and you are in America, I thought you were in Australia for some reason :) Oh well.

I hope in all that sitting and waiting you did, you were still saving an extra few dollars :) This card will well and truly power your HDTV:

Dual DVI (with Dual-link DVI, support up to 2560x1600) and Video out connector with S-Video/Composite/HDTV support.

So, I finally ended up getting a g92 8800gts from EVGA. It already came, but I can't open it until Christmas... But I'll be sure to benchmark it then and share the results! Even though there will probably be plenty of benchmarks on the internet by then...
