Go with the 8 extra pipes and the added muscle of the 6800GT.

 

You Will Not Regret The Wait Nor The Purchase.

 

It is pre-ordained, Brother Bionic. Go to the LIGHT!!!

If you are going to use the new vidcard with the rig in your sig, be advised you will definitely be CPU bottlenecked with a 6800GT .

 

With the rig in my sig, virtually every game I play is CPU limited. However, if you do plan to upgrade the rest of your rig sometime down the road (like I do) then a 6800GT should be a good choice. So when you do upgrade to a nice beefy CPU of your choice, the 6800GT will be able to stretch its legs.

I would save a little more and get a CPU, motherboard, and vid card all at once. At least you'd have the PCI-express transition out of the way.
