That card is equal to the cost of half my new machine, excluding the monitor.

dont use the EVGA stepup program

i was going to do that with my EVGA GTX. but you have to pay THEIR price when you stepup. which is usually double what the difference is on newegg.

i.e.

my GTX cost me $520. the Ultra was $620 at the time. evga wants $699. so it would have been $70 MORE to stepup. so i just sold the GTX.

You still have the 8800GTS which will last you two years or so, enough time for the new 9800 GTX Ultra cards to drop prices extremely low.

Edit: Im skipping the 8800GTX and going right away to 9800 Series
