Worth it ? I have a 8800gts 320mb and i am pretty limited for game resolution, since i just got a 24" Monitor, i know i should get the 1gb version but its about 3-10fps difference , i don't really mind, or maybe i should wait for new card incoming ?

I would say it is worth it.
Just make sure your power supply is sufficient. At stock speed the HD 4870 uses about 130w of power compared to approximately 105w for the 8800GTS 320mb. That's about 2 amps more.
I'd say it's worth it. I see it for 180 at both tigerdirect and newegg, but that's with a $20 rebate.
I do know that the nVidia GeForce GTX 295 should be coming out in the next few weeks, but as to whether that will really drive prices down a considerable amount is only speculation. It probably would take longer for a real price drop on the mid-level cards.
Yes its worth it,excellent price for an excellent card
