What do you expect of the current 7800-7900-7950 card prices when these come out? 25-50 dollars cheaper or possibly more?

I just did some major reading, and I learned some stuff, maybe obvious to you guys. The DX10 video cards will only be available to Microsoft Vista for one. I personally cannot afford this so I don't plan on buying it. Also, it seems like the eVGA 7900 GTO video cards are really low on stock. A few sites have them going in and out of stock very quickly. The 7900 GTO will probably go out of stock before it decreases in price, so it would a good idea to buy the card now.

QUESTION! probably answered a zillion times but...ehhh...

Will THIS card run on my current board? Or will it need a DX-10 chipset or something?

It should be able to.....as long as you have an available PCI-E slot.

But that would be like selling an FX5900 for 50 bucks in like a year, then buying two 6800s ... even though the 7800s are out.

Or like buying two Dodge Neons instead of a Mercedes.

After a year? Thats a long time...
