1. DFI Lanparty Ultra NF4
2. Just go 6800GT. It can overclock to Ultra speeds fine.

1. The DFI lanparty range.

2. Wait a while for the new cores, from the specs, the X900 will be the top card, but we will have to wait to be certain. For your question though, the 6800ultra is better, but it is wasting money, when the 6800gt is able to get to ultra speeds and beyond easily.

My 6800GT won't reach those speeds, but I hear it is the first 6800GT made by eVGA that won't touch Ultra speeds... must be a defective one. If you do get one, go with Leadtek, not eVGA... just my personal experience.

Dont get a Radeon X800 series. They lack PSM 3.0, a vital component

Get a 6600GT and save for the Nvidia 7800 or wait a month to get the 7800.

judging by the specs, the 7800 looks to be a flop. The X900 will pwn it (judging by specs)

Yeah, no kidding. In all honesty though, we should probably wait and see what the 7800 GTX is like before we go around saying what will pwn what.
