honestly... it would be cheaper for you to buy a second 6800gt and run in SLI... the tests show that a SLI 6800 beats a single 7800 in most games. think about it, pay $200 (the price of a 6800 after the 7800 ships) for a second 6800 and you get the same speeds of a NEW 7800 that costs $500 This is the day for those who bought SLI to shine and save

Yeah, it doesn't seem to be that much better, and in their HL2 tests, the x800 beat it except for 1600x1200 resolution. I plan on getting the current leading cards cheaper, like you said, because I think its a waste to spend $400+ on a video card, especially when I dont have that much to spend ;).

Yeah i agree, its a waste to buy a video card when they first come out at those prices, wait a few months and they go down in price alot. unless you have some need to have the bragging rights or have top of the line parts right away. the current gen of cards will probably last a long time as good card, my old FX5200 can play everything up to BFV perfectly (60+fps) on high settings so the current cards like the X800 and 6800 will last awhile. i want to see how the X900 does before i even think about a 7800.
