Default What should I get?

Okay guys, I've never asked for hardware buying advice before but... I'm gonna have about $250 to spend in about three weeks and I'm wondering If I should buy a 6800GT? I mean 7800 is coming out pretty soon so I don't want to be buying something that will be obsolete in a few months but... opinions? Advice?

It will be good enough even after that, the new gen is just for people that have to have "top of the line" right away. I would wait and save the money, wait till next summer to upgrade the video card or buy a second one if you have the motherboard and run SLI.
