I'd still pick a 7800GTX over that too... But yeah, the new chips will be out in the relatively new future. That's what I'm looking forward to. Maybe I'll pull a few more dollars out on student loan for it.

If you mean the 512mb 7800gtx... I agree. However I would get the x1800 over the regular 7800gtx because it has hardware h.264 decode, avaio, you can use hdr with aa, it's 90nm so it will overclock better etc...

I heard both the ATI X1900XTX & NVIDIA 7900SERIES will both be costing in the $800 to $1000 range. Unless the samples that are out next week, show at least 40% increase in performance over the r520's or G70's... They won't be very popular that that price....
