I can safely say that I wuv my 7800 GTX

Maybe SLI'd 6800 GT/Ultra can out bench a single 7800 GTX (as can SLI'd 6600 GT beat a single 6800 GT, mind), but as of now, SLI'd 7800 GTX's are the ultimate desktop GPU setup, no question.

I'll be adding a second most probably later on in the year, unless the R520/X900 really, REALLY outperforms it significantly. Or I'll get the '32 pipelined 512MB Ultra Extreme OC' version of the 7800, or whatever, that nVidia no doubt release in a grudge match with ATI

Get a 7800GTX they have way better AA, and use less power as well. not to mention faster.

The 7800GTX has a 100+% performance boost over the 6800GT ultra. Just look at this. Look at the bottom of your screen.

Ya you just have to spend more money on a high resolution monitor.

Who's going to play Doom 3 at that resolution anyways? Heck, even if my video card would allow me to play at high resolutions, I would still probably stick to 1024x768 or 1280x1024 and enable 4x AA and 8x AF. Because of the limitations of my graphics card, I play most of my games at 1024x768, no AA, 8x AF.

Just wondering, where do you see a 100%+ increase? are you talking about 2 7800GTX's vs 1 6800 Ultra, or what?

I can generally crank the games as high as they can go and still get decent framerates.

The 7800 GTX isnt worth it 2 me, at least not until i c how it performs against the X900
