i'm not an expert liek most here, but i pretty sure the general opinion on the vid card issue is Yes, get the 6800 and wait on 7900, this is good if you have the cash to spend on the new card b/c it will no doubt be overpriced. or once it comes out, the prices on others should drop a bit.

The best thing you can do at this point is read this sticky: http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=77323

After you have read and calaborated on this then you will be ready to ask more specific questions so we don't have to pick every part out for you.
