As nvidia are planning on releasing their new cards then i am stuck with this decision.
Wait until Nvidia relase the new cards so that the 8800GTX / ULTRA drops in price and get one of them.
Get a 1gb 2900XT
My board is SLI which would mean if i went nvidia i have upgrade possibility.
IMHO Nvidia is the performance leader at this point and you having an SLI board further simplifies your decision. I hate wait, and I can't justify waiting 4-6 months for the release of something new, because in the computer world thats almost a generation of hardware. Something is always around the corner for you to "wait" on. Computers aren't an investment to maintain equity as depreciation is going to own you no matter what you do. If you are building now, buy what you can afford now. Waiting is overrated.
