Are you referring to the 7800GT and 7900GT question?

If so, it would of been a better idea to buy the 7900GT obviously, faster clocks and extra four pipelines, and it will OC better.

But since you've bought it your stuck with it so wait for G80's.

Personally I would go with a single 7900GTX or X1900XT.

The 7900GT OCs better, runs faster, and is probably slightly more efficient in power usage and emissions.

But why would you pay for a 7800GT that costs the same as the 7900GT?

I know, seriously, the 7800GT is weaksauce compared to the 7900GT, which is a 7800GTX-beater. So its like getting something greater than a 7800GTX for $300, $130 cheaper than the 7800GTX.
