How do you think I'll be able to play upcomming game like UT 2007, and games that will come out in the next 1-2 years?

You should be able to play them decently.

You'll probably be okay with UT2007 but you might not be able to play at a high resolution. As for other games, who knows, but 1-2 years is long time technology-wise. You may be able to run them but you'll probably have to make compromises with the game settings to get acceptable results.

Should play UT2007 just fine since it was running on a single 6800U at E3 pretty dam well and it still looked awsome.

I imagine that SLI 7800 GTX cards would play it just fine.
What about DirectX 10 or whatever they call it. I thought that was coming out before 2007. That might change things a bit.

I don't have SLI, I can't afford buying 2 cards

that's the thing, if you have an SLI motherboard then you can get another 7800GTX in the future :)

You should be fine with most games that are coming up for the next two maybe three years, though if you want DX10 support, you'll probably have to spring for a new card sometime after Vista's launch.

UT2007 should be ok, but they may include 512MB textures for 512MB cards.

this is a good question. im thinkin about dishin out some cash for a 7800GTX 512MB version, but if it wont support DX10 and DX10 is coming out soon, then i might as well wait.

DX10 will probably look great, however i heard that it wont be backwards compatible with DX9. what a crock. :mad:
