Default should i upgrade my sli to 7800gtx sli

I just bought my duel 6800 ultras a few weeks back., bah now the 7800s are out. Does it even seem tangible to upgrade?Or just a waste of money right now, with the present state of gaming graphics

Keep the 6800's. I heard the 7800's are a barely improvement over the 6800's.

they are, he was being sarcastic (i think). They are like $700 USD aren't they?

Seriously, keep the 6800's man, they're more than overkill.

They are so much overkill that Nvidia is planning to release special drivers to support 16x AA, just to give people with 2 of them something to do...
