True, with the cost of the cutting edge cards these days still being a little on the high side (IMHO anyway), it's difficult to say. The 7800GT would last you for 2 - 3 years without too much trouble, though depending on if you really *need* anything more before the new cores are released you may be better keeping your money in your pocket and getting the next generation chipset.

You'll get top of the line performance (albeit probably at a price) but I guess you'll also have bragging rights.

Then again, although I doubt top of the line cards will be any more expensive than they are now, the "old" top of the line cards like the 7800 are bound to fall in price by some margin upon the release of the G71 cards.
