Not much longer.
The 7800GTX isnt that much more powerful.
Just OC the 6800GT.

the 7800 GTX also has a more advanced version of Anti-Aliasing

I would just say, depending on your wallet and needs, it's up to you.

well thats what i mean its still a great card the price is hard. But most still games dont run full load on it. 6800GT still seems to be the better buy.

I would say 6800gt is plenty for now.

I had this same dilemma. I decided to go w/ the 7800gtx because it has 50% more pixel pipelines, 33% more vertex pipelines, and from what reviews of the card said I felt that a little more money would be worth it. In Anantech's review the 7800gtx performed quite a bit better than the 6800 ultra and about equal (in most tests) with the 6800 ultra's in SLI. I guess it all depends on what you are willing to spend.

Which by the last report should be available sometime around the end of 2013..

If the $150 price difference doesn't bother you, the 7800GTX is definately the more powerful card...
