Just wait, the 6800ultra can still run game at crazy frame rates at high resloutions. I would utill next summer to upgrade since the 7800gtx's will be cheaper as well the 1800xt's

Don't upgrade now. Nvidia in early 2006 (like March) is post to come out with a new video card. Just hold off and wait for now.

Wait till 2006. AMD is coming out with a new Processor Socket M2 so all the old AMD technology will go down in price big time. But if you can't hold off now then I guess go ahead and spend the money on new things but you be better off waiting a tad longer.
