Currently I plan to wait at least another year or something along the lines of that for another generation of GPUs to come out or the prices to lower on the existing GPUs.
Its worth the jump...trust me.

You can sell that 8800GTX and get a core 216 and you will absolutely love it.

That 8800GTX aint gonna last another year..its already been two and its showing its age when a 8800GT can outperform it.

You can sell it for $100 and get an HD4850 with superior cooling for $90 out of your pocket:
