PNY tend to be overpriced from what I have seen.

PNY 7800 gt's 300 bucks right now on newegg. But I heard they have heating issues.

I'd recommend putting out another 20 bucks and get an eVGA. I've yet to see a bad review.
eVGA's 7800 gt


Though I've heard you can overclock a 6800 to about the same performance, if you'd rather save some $$$
