Its getting closer and closer to the $250 mark as the 7900GT/X gets closer. If you are looking for bang for the buck, this is the card to get.

The prices on pc parts drop quickly so you can probably get that gfx card for $200 in like 2-3 months.

Yep, that's the one that was 275 yesterday... they upped the price and put a rebate on it making it lower.

I'll buy it once I land a summer job, or if I get incredibly lucky with birthday, maybe my godmother will send me a hefty college kid sympathy check. 7800GT, here I come.

lol - College kid sympathy check... that's freakin' funny.
I would pray every night before bed for those when I was in college... I never got one... but that didn't stop me from praying for them.
