Would it be worth it to upgrade from a single 6800 GT to a 7800 GTX SLi system now? Or will a 7800 Ultra come out real soon? Or would it be better to just to get 7800 GT in SLi instead? I've noticed the price difference from GTX in SLi vs GT in SLi is ~$250. I plan on gaming at 1920x1200 as I'm getting a 2405FPW soon.

I thought the GTX was basically supposed to be equivalent to an Ultra.

The GTX was supposed to be the equivalent to the Ultra. However, it gave NV room for a slightly higher clock Ultra version if needed. NV might surprise us with one, but I really doubt it.

If that's the res you plan on gaming at, I would go with the dual GTX system. Those high resolutions where you need AF/AA is where the top cards are needed and actually show real results. And if you are going to spend that much money, you may as well go all the way. Some people will say that the difference is marginal between the SLI Gt vs the SLI GTX... but then again you could say that with a single GTX vs. the SLI.

Do it dude, spend a LOT of money. DO IT! GTX SLI all THE WAY!

And please, post some pics afterwards! =D
