Mind you, I can still play everything I want to maxed at 1920x1200 on my 5870, so I'm not sure I see the point yet. In a year or so when they're cheap, maybe. I usually skip every other generation, and even then wait 'till prices come down
One thing I don't do is buy Nvidia cards. They seem to work fine for everyone else, but in my possession they die at a remarkable rate (death toll so far: one 7800GTX (of a pair), one 8800 GTS 512, and two 9800 GX2s (in stages, I fixed them at first by using the still working PCBs from each to make one working card which lasted another 6 months...) I don't even bother overclocking my graphics card, so I really have no idea why they hate me Oddly, I've never killed an ATI card. My 2900XT still works, my 4890 still works - although these have passed onto friends now. Even my old 9800SE AIW (flashed to a Pro) I found in the bottom of a box in the loft still works. Lucky, as I was diagnosing a problem with an AGP (how quaint...) system at the time.
