I'm looking at eVGA's site, and they have their 6800GT in stock for $400. I'm wondering if now is the right time to buy. I'd hate to purchase one this week only to have the price drop by any appreciable amount before Doom3 comes out. What do you think? Jump on the bandwagon, or bide my time? Thanks.

Yep, card ain't gonna drop in msrp any time soon. Only way you will get it for a lower price if there is a sale on it you find. plus you get free farcry with evga which is great.

$399 is the card's suggested retail price. I'd be very surprised if the price drops $50 or more in the next two months. If you want the card, get it now. You can feel better about that purchase because you wouldn't be giving your money to any of the e-tailers who are charging inflating prices.
