Default GTX295 still king ?

I feel like a new graphics card, not that my 4870 won't play games perfectly well, i just wan't a new one. You know the feeling

Anyway..pretty simple question, is GTX295 still the fastest card out ?, if so, will it be for some considerable time (2+months) or is something superior just around the corner. Fortunately for me. My budget is 500, i'll need a new PSU aswell. Using a 10 500W PSU for my 4870 scares me enough not even going to try with a dual gpu card - so i'm allocating around 80 for a PSU, meaning i have 420 for the graphics card.

So if GTX295 is the best, and there isn't a new card coming within the next 1 to 3months, whats the best brand and model card to get ?


I was looking at this PSU > Corsair 850W TX Series PSU - 140mm Fan - 5 Year Warranty - Ebuyer < Yeh, it's 30 over my allocated PSU budget. But heck, whats 40 when your spending 500. Any good ? And yes i'm sure it's overkill, but you never know... maybe i'll need another 295 down the line.
