Default Considering an upgrade in a few weeks.

I have this:

And it has served my needs absolutely perfectly, but it will be underpowered in a few months, so its time to think about either buying a second for x16 SLI or getting another card. The only thing is, I don't want to buy a new PSU (I have a 500W), so my plan is to get the best reasonably priced card that my PSU can handle. I like this:

And yes I am aware that DX 10 cards come out in days (waiting for the price cuts ), but I simply won't spend much more than $200 (on any single computer part) unless its really good, so I've got a good wait until I jump onto series 8 (hence the upgrade).

Oh and how much should i ask for my 6800xt, if I sell it?

Opteron 175 + Scythe Infinity
Asus A8N32-SLI
2 gigs corsair XMS DDR 400
XFX geforce 6800 XT
X-navigator case
30G Maxtor + 250G Maxtor

depending on how long you've had it... I would say 90-95 shipped would do about right... the 7900 will do you just fine for a while until you want to upgrade...

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
