Default 6800GS gone

Well I sold my 6800GS to someone and got 175 for it. Right now I'm running on my old 6200 TC @ 456/714 from 350/550 that I got before I got me 6800GS. I'm planning on buying the e-VGA 7900GT SC @ 550/1580 for $400. Any good you think or should I wait a little? Right now I'm not dissapointed with my 6200 I can live with it for a bit longer but I want to get a more powerful card than the 6800GS.

I'm bored so here's a picture of my video card. I made a heatsink for it out of an old P1 CPU heatsink and a fan. Dropped the temps quite a bit.
