As of today, right now... it's 212.00 but truthfully I would wait to see what new batch of cards come out, then you might be able to get a 7800GS for cheaper once more people switch to PCIE it's still 256 but it runs as good if not better than that one you want marks wise... IMHO

That is barely an upgrade from your 6800tbh. Wait until the summer and spend the money on a new 8 series or a 7 series at a cheaper price.

As for teh conversion, do it your self at x-rates.com

I have the PCIx version of that card. and oh my god.

It is awesome, plays HL2 and NFS:MW on max settings with ease.

It is a really good card, and if you're considering it I highly reccomend it. It has awesome stability, and is really fast. The memory is also really good.

Highly reccomended, any more q's just ask!
