Yea, but while looking at the 6800, I noticed that it was also 80-100 dollars more expensive, and I really don't know if that is worth it.

6800 GT will ensure that you won't have to upgrade for a good while, the performance is what can be described as 'immense' and can only be topped by the 6800 Ultra (ATI fanboys will argue different but no one with a brain agrees with them *ducks and hides*)

(current ATI cards don't even support Pixel Shader 3.0, n00bs)

How much does the memory (128-256) have an impact on the video quality? Would it btter to get a 2600 256 or a 2800 128

Looks good! *Thumbs up* If people start talking about "get AMD" and other crap, just tell them to shove it because they will then say get a DFI motherboard. They want everyone to have the same **** they think is god. Yesh.

I would definitely recommend an AMD processor for gaming.

Don't worry about getting a GT or Ultra card, you won't even notice in most games; unless you prefer running your games at 1600x1200 8xAA and AF??

Edit: the case is very ugly in my opinion also, but my PC is in a cupboard
