Default Need SERIOUS help ASAP :(

Alright I don't wana mess this up this is really important. The graphics card for the new desktop I'm building is a GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB from BFG tech

heres a link

So the problem is im being told that nividia is on the verge of releasing a new GTX 280 chip set that will blow the 9800s out of the water

Now the problem is that im ordering this 9800 and i wanted to know since BFG has a trade up policy of 100 days

would it work to buy this card now and pay the difference for a gtx 280 later when it comes out?

basically the thing is that im on a time constraint and I really wana get this desktop ordered asap

I just need some input on what you guys think I should do

Is buying the 9800gx2 a good idea and would it be eligible for a trade up with BFG if they released the gtx280s?

If you could wait, I would tell you too, however, since you say your short on time, yes, buy the GX2 now and step up to the GTx280 when they are released.
