I was thinking either gainward or leadtek.

Any ideas?

EVGA ftw ! The step-up program is sweet if you get your card at the right time.

Wait a month and get a G80. Itl be faster and you wont have to deal with SLI. :)

What's going to be amusing is when a single G80 punks X1950 XTX Crossfire.

Would the g80 be in price range of about 300-400 UK pounds?
Why is EVGA so good anyway?

Also want to say is it worth upgrading over a dual gainward 6800gs goes like hell SLI?

You'd notice a good boost with a 7950GX2, but if the specs of the G80 are even partially true, its going to lay waste to all current graphics cards. And that will be true of both the GTX and GTS models. The two will most likely be priced at either $500USD and $400USD or $600USD and $500USD respectively. I think either one is within your price range.

If youre considering a 7950, wait for a G80. I promise you, Itl be worth it.

Well, if you get the EVGA, the Step Up will basically mean that the purchase price today for a GX2 is a nice down payment on a G80.

Thats true.

If you absolutely need the upgrade right now and wont mind having to screw around with shipping stuff back and forth next month (you might be without a card for a week or two) then thats always an option. If youre just looking to do an upgrade "soon" though, I cannot recommend getting anything now.

Wait for G80.

Well unless you keep your old card, you'll be without a decent graphics card while youre waiting for the stepup to turn around for probably a week and a half. And thats the last thing I'd want with some good games coming out over the next month.

Anyways, it was just a suggestion. Its easier, faster and probably less expensive to just wait till the G80 comes out and buy one while the retailers are having their price wars. My friend had to wait a few weeks for his stepup request to get through the queue when the 7900GT came out. Where as I had my GTX within a few days because I ordered from a store.
