--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm an avid gamer but my game is counter-strike 1.6 and I got 100fps even with 3-4 smokes with my Radeon 9800pro 256mb. I do not play any of the 'new' high end games (well rarley) becuase I am just strictly 1.6.

-Do you think anything should be upgraded?
-Even though I just play 1.6 do you think it would be worth getting the 7800 for the future so I dont have to upgrade later or should I just wait.

Hope to hear great responses!

How much did you pay for the 6800, I personally don't think the 7800 is the best buy for the buck right now, since it is a relatively new card, I think the 6800 will be able to handle pretty much everything you will need for at least the next year or 2, if not more. Everything else looks pretty solid.

Well if you want to get into detail the 6800GS technically is a 7 series card, so its fine will play all the games out now quite well.
