How is the performance in PF? Is it worth the upgrading?

I don't have a 7800, too dang expensive. But there are the top dog when it comes to VGAs right now, and I am sure it would do great.

But before you think of plunking $400-500 smackers down on just a video card, ya may want to think of upgrading in other ways instead, such as getting a new CPU, or more RAM. Heck with $400-500, you could get an entirly new MoBo+CPU. Flight sims, run mostly on RAM and raw CPU power.

My next VGA upgrade I can see would probibly be a 6800 Ultra when that comes down in price and right now I am useing a 6600GT.

6800Ultra will probably never really come down in price all that much. The card costs way too much to make, it will probably just be phased out. 7800GT is the new interesting card for me, msrp of $450, already selling for $400. I would guess they will be close to $350 soon.
