Default Swap out?

I've got a 6800 Ultra in my pc currently. Is the 7800 gt so much better that I should upgrade or is the difference minimal? I havent seen much comparing the two yet.

Thanks all.

It's not going to be that much better. Wait awhile. If you have eVGA you could use their step-up program.

If I were you, seeing you have the SLI board, I would just add another 6800U. That 6800U will last for a while, maybe a year or two. So once prices fall, add another one. Don't do it right now; I think you won't see much of a difference.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll just stay with my ultra for now and maybe toss another in there.

yeah the 6800 ultra is a great card.
you wont see a HUGE increase, not enough to justify the cost at this point

i would rather see you go with a 7800gtx, than put 6800 ultra's in sli though
