I wouldnt feel worried about it. If the cards are moddable. ((Which I dont expect all to be)). Then you still have a card with better cooling. Still have a card with better memory. (200 mhz difference)) which is even bigger than th3e 6800GT 6800U. Dont get me wrong. The 7800GT is awesome. But you're card isnt any less from owning

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but aren't only half of the memory spaces populated?

Makes you wonder, don't it? I have a theory, but the Rumor Mill is a better place to talk about it.

Supply and demand? NVIDIA can produce these in sufficient quantities to the point that the market is flooded?

Nvidia's strategy is release a Ultra powerfull card, and Wait for ATI's answer.
During the meen time, impulse buyers will sell anything they have to get it.

When ATI does show their hand, nvidia releases a slightly slower one for a cheaper price (100 bucks to be exact). That's what happened with the 6800 series.

This year, ATI has yet to show their hand. Since it will be a while before ATI answers back to nvidia. Nvidia followed through with their strategy. Thus the 7800 GT was born. This puts more pressure on ATI. However ATI is still doing quite well. It's just that Nvidia is now a force to be reckoned with. This just means that new families of GPUs are going to come out every year,
or even more frequently. Meaning the 7800 GT will be next year's 6800 GT.

My two thumbs up for the 7800 GT launch.

Nvidia is looking good, their product lineup from the 6600 to the GTX, all supports "The Power of 3".

Although MSRP of the 7800 GT is $449 but its not hard at all to get it at below $400 mark.

Even if ATI next part able to match the 7800 series performance, I doubt they will able to match NV's pricing and be profitable....

So for now,
NVIDIA - 2
ATI - 0

Just a question about where you say "ATI is still doing quite well". How do you come to that conclusion? For example (http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=ATYT...z=l&q=l&c=NVDA). Also, NVIDIA has sold over 1.5 million SLI motherboards since their release and over 6 million SLI capable GPUs alone.

Nvidia has the performace dx9 market sown up. But ati has a much large share in the medium to low end especialy integrated, though intel beats them both on integrated.

I have to say props to nVidia for two real launches. No BS, no waiting. Boom.

My Sig rig will be together early next week.

thats because the FX series is still a thorn in nvidia's side. as time goes by though they will slowly fade out and people will upgrade to the 6 series and 7 series cards. the mid range radeons totally destroy the mid range FX series.

I really that the amount of unlocks will be more than 65%, because the 7800GT is really CHEAP here.
