    What about "This is the last time I am going to talk about this"

    All the above mentioned - two of yours and one of mine- are correct. Their use, however, depends on the situation and context in which they were or are used.
    If you have previously decided not to talk, use going to +inf.
    If you have just decided not to talk again, use I will.
    If you have talked several times and found out that no use of keeping on talking about it, use I am talking

    regards
