ive got to find someone willing to purchase it, it has aftermarket cooling on it, the zalman one thats like 35$ idk remember which model. how much could i get for it? also the performance increase in the 7800-7900gt enough to go throught the trouble of selling it?

I say neither. Sell your 7800GT now, buy like a 6600gt. Wait until G80 and buy one of those. Or dont sell it all and just buy a g80 later.

the question is where would you buy a 7800gt from? you'd probably have to get it for about the same price as a 7900gt unless you're buying it used.

i say if you don't need to upgrade, don't.
