7800GT or 7800GTX or ATI x1800 would be the only noticeble increase for you really.

Welcome to the forums

7800GT fts your pocket probably. 7800GTX if you have the money although the 7800GT can be oced to on par with 7800GTX performance. Unless you get the 7800GTX512 but thats a bit expensive ^^"

Yep, thats what I did. I had a 6800GT AGP, and upgraded to a 7800GT PCI-E, tossing the 6800GT AGP to my brothers comp. With that 7800GT, I should be able to run 1280x1024 with max settings and 4xAA, maybe higher too.

I've been thinking about upgrading, but I don't know if it'll be worth it too :\

I think it's a bad Idea for you guys to upgrade.

Not worth the $$$ yet for you.

In another year, maybe but not now.

I agree. Keep your 6800GT and wait for the next generation. I've had both, yes there is a noticable difference, but definitely not worth an extra $300.
