technology is constantly upgrading...if you were to wait 2 more months from the release of the 8900 you could save some money probably too...if you need it soon get it soon.

Yea...then sell it afterwards, if you want, to get the 89xx.

ebay.com?

But you're right, you don't need to sell it, because that card will last you a year or two.

said it before, say it again...
step up blows....jsut get the card you want now, and when its time for a new one, sell old one on ebay: keep it till you get the one you ordered after your old one sold on ebay: install new card: send old card to whoever bought it on ebay.
this way, you are not without a video card. and, you're not paying 30% more for a card because you are buying it from evga instead of newegg (i know you cant get newegg in austrailia, right? but you get my point).
step up = no bueno.

Just some advice, get the G.SKILL HZs. I have them and they overclock like a beast. Have mine running at 1100 MHz (stock 800) @ 5-4-4-12. I have an 8800 GTX but have not ventured too far when overclocking it so I can't really advise on that.

I have a QX6700 (quad core) and I can overclock it wonderfully with my hz's. I have my fsb and ram running 1:1 @ 1100 MHz. I could probably go higher too. Trust me they are well worth it.
