Default trading in my 7800?

Would it be worth the extra 25-50 bucks to just send in my 7800 GT to newegg under "Product satisfaction" and buy a 7900 GT....or is my 7800 enough to play most games....becuase I never used it yet becuase the last one newegg sent me was DOA......just a thought since they are so cheap...

the 7800 gt can handle all the games out right now. why not wait and swap it for an 8 series card? - Charlie

I plan to get the 7900GT in june and trade in for the G80 when it comes out. Hope that's before eVGAs 3 month step-up policy would run out.
