    well 7800gt's are going for around 200-230 on ebay... the 1800xt 256 is about $230 now should i sell my 7800gt and buy a 1800xt 256 for about the same price, maybe a 20-30 loss?

    Hmm... I don't know. If you're going for SLI, then stay with the GT. If you're staying single, I'm still lost in the decision. But if you know fro sure SLI, then keep it. Hope this helps, I haven't read too much on GT's.

    the x1800xt will easily stomp a 7800gt, shoot it even beats the 7900gt when both cards are at stock. if it's only goign to cost you a few$ yeah definetly go for it.

    Hmmm...I would go with an X1900XT if it doesn't burn a hole in your budget. But SLI with 7800GT isn't bad either, it would beat X1900XT. Or, you could get a 79/800GTX 512mb, instead of the X1900XT/X, so that later on you have an option for SLI. Which ever one tickles your pickle is good!

    That's what I was gonna say. Im not a big fan of nVidia. it might have faster framerates but ATI has better image quality, for only a few frames less. The X1800XT 256mb is good, I would go with that.

    BTW, what games do you play, and do you have XFire?

    I want to get G.R.AW. but I don't got the money right now.

    I'm going to play CoD2 single player. I already beat it but I did a clean install of XP, so I'm beating every game again.
