6800Ultra/GT/GS are still very servicable cards.....they support SM3 just like the 7 series. The higher end 6*** series should last any gamer (on a budget) till DX10.

Yeah there are no problems with the 6800 series...I believe that you will soon see alot of articles about how the 6800 series cards will be crap soon because companies are always trying to get you to buy a new card by making you think it is needed...

In order to sell someone something you need to make them feel bad about themselves.

Only you and I will get this joke I think

I'm just a firm believer in purchasing high end, keeping it until something better comes along and then selling the high end while it is still worth a decent resale value. That is why I would sell if I were you. See all these people telling you that it is still a decent card? That's because it is and you have had it for between a year and two. Now in another couple of years, how many of these people will be saying the same thing and what will that card be worth?

If you sold it now and bought a 7900GT(X) you can be sure that it will be worth more than the 6800.

Everyone has different methods of purchasing though. Some buy and sell at a great loss. Some buy and drive the hardware to the ground and buy anew.

My advice is more considerate of state of the art for the lowest consumptive price whilst still staying with that state of the art.

Hate to burst your bubble, but not everyone can buy the best of the best, especially when something new comes out as soon as stuff does. And that is a decent card. People said the same thing when the FX series cards came out. The low end FX series cards stink compared to to the Ti4xxx series. And for the people that only have boards with agp, can't exactly upgrade to the newest stuff die to pci-e.

Ah, but when Omri bought his card it was the best of the best and I am posting this to him personally, not as a general rule of thumb for all to follow and it is just my personal advice to him. Thus you might be the one in the bubble thinking that I am stating this as a global method for all to follow.

hmm the thing is.... the israel prices isnt the prices that you buy... everything and i mean every thing is twice the price... and because not alot of people buy hardware often lots of hardware like GeForce 4 MX440 is still on sale... and be sure that the 6800Ultra is still on sale so my lost is great... nobody will buy my card for normal price if you can buy a new one for a really cheap price... so i need to go low... that suck... and now that all the new hardware cost even more (because the old hardware prices didnt drop alot and all the new hadware need to cost even more) i need to add alot of money... well israel suck!!!
