So what kind of cards are expected to hit in feb? I was going to buy an 8800GT in January, but maybe I should wait.

when the 9 series comes out the high end gaming cards will probably be $450+
and then the 8800gt will still be the best BFTB
$200 for a 256mb one is an amazing deal atm

I hear the 256MB will be brought to its knees at high resolutions?

most likely at higher resolutions. but even then you could SLI the gt's and it'd still be cheaper then 9 series and possibly perform better than a single card. All depends on what you want. I'll probably ebay my ultra for 400 or maybe 5 if its not too late once release date is officially confirmed then grab a 9. Just to leave future SLI options open, rather than going for 2x GT's.

With the step up program you get to keep your old card and buy a new one at the cost of the difference between the old card and new one, right ?

No, you send back your old card and get the new one, and you pay the difference.
