Bad timing for your video card dude. The 7900 GTX is coming out really soon, Making the 7800 GTX lower in price. And soon enought the GeForce 8 series is coming out. Once it's out you gotta upgrade your vid card soon.

Can't wait till the GF 8 comes out.

i wouldnt worry too much about the geforce 8 as of now... people want to game NOW, and do not want to wait to see games at their best.... as for the 7800gtx.. ya you should wait til the 7900 comes out so the price will drop on that..

by the time he wants another video card it'll be too late for the trade-up, i've read on here its only 3 months.... and the geforce 8 isnt until the end of this year.. 3rd or 4th quarter.. i myself highly doubt 3rd... dates are always pushed back
