Personally if I was building a PC today, I'd hold out for a couple more weeks. See if there is a fix for this game with the 6800 series and go from there. The other alternative is if there isn't a fix at the time of purchasing I'd diffently go the X800XT(PE) PCI-E route that monarch is claiming to have in the 3rd week of DEC. just my .02$
Edit, also there is word of 512mb cards right around the corner, may want to check in to it.
