yeah stay away from the 512 unless you have money to burn, bury, and slap people with, dx10 is coming and there's already buzz on the town about the 8800 series gpu's, putting that much $ into a card is insane, I bought 2 7800 gt's for less than what they're offering the ultra's for and have better scores to boot, its just something to think about.

So you went and got the 512, personaly i think that was the right move. Whats top of the line now, will only be good or ok in 6 months.

dude, if you want to spend money spend money...
if all you have is 750, then buy two 7800 gt's for sli, you'll get more performance out of them than the single card
if you have 1500 to throw away on directx9 era cards, by all means get two gtx 512, and add in a fx-57, phase change, and pwn 3dmark05, along with anything else that gets in your way.
browse the web and find the right price to performance ratio for you

edit: these prices are dollars, and does anyone else remember what an abysmal failure the 6800 ultra 512 boards were?

if you want a performance card that doesn't cost much go for a 6800GS or a 7800GT. then you can get the wc you want and you won't have to worry about wasting all your money on a dx9 card. You'll still have money left over to start saving for your 8800
