No matter what card you get, 3 months later it will be outclassed. To my mind, today, the best deal is twin 5850's. If DX11 is going to bring more of what Dx10 brought, frankly I don't see the excitement. If anything about PhysX intrigues you, ya might wanna wait for whatever nVidia has in the oven come thanksgiving. If ya not in a rush, I expect we'll see both new generations (the next 4870x2 and GTX295) top out come late spring.
