I was browsing newegg, its a fact atm, that the 7800GTX cards are selling for $599, even the eVGA BF2 bundle....
so what's with 6800U cards being more expensive???? $659?

That's a 512 Meg 6800U. It's a known thing that the 512 Meg cards are currently priced disproportionately high. If there were a 7800 GTX 512, I guarantee it would probably cost even MORE than that 6800U.

your right...my miss :confused: Still a complete rip since 512mb gains you nothing.

I can imagine that those 512s will suffer now that the 7800GTXs are out and can beat the living crap out of them with just 256mb. Prices will drop, just wait :P I'm still awaiting the 512mb 7800GTX - maybe that card will actually be able to make use out of the 256 extra mb... Peace,
