No since in spending $2000 in the summer of 2005 if there is going to be such radical changes within a year that it makes it completely obsolete.

P.S. Upgrading your current video card to a 6800 or X800 would be perfect. It would get your PC to 2006 no prob.
Billy is right. 2006 is the next step for technology.
