    i have a 6800 gt and would like to upgrade eventually but it seems the only step up would be the 6800Ultra :hsd: anyone in the "know" have any idea if Nvidia will bring its 7800 series over to the AGP? :noes:

    I don't think they'll bother. The best you might be able to do is get an R5xx AGP part from ATI when they (supposedly) launch later this month...and the AGP part probably won't be available right away. PCI-E is the future. I am in the same boat at the moment :|. By the time I get the money to upgrade, I'll probably end up just replacing the whole damned mobo/cpu/ram combo (again).
