Hello, I wanted to ask if its a good time to buy a graphic card right now. I have built my own rig around a year ago but used my old hd3850 and it was doing ok but now its just way outdated and cant play some games i want at all. So I was wondering if I should wait for new 6 series or maybe new nvidia cards, dont care about brand, most bang for my buck is what matters thought i find nvidia's physx cuda etc attractive contrary to eyefinity which ill never use.

yes... if you really can wait for the hd 6000 series thats good... if you can't really wait you can try gtx 460 1gb.... gtx 470 is good... but much more expensive and uses far more power... i think gtx 460 is the most bang for buck card for right now...
you'll definitely notice huge improvement over your hd 3850 believe me....
Wait for the HD6xxx cards to hit the market. Then let the prices settle down.
ok thanks, i hope 6xxx cards gonna be good and at a right price. cause i heard they are based on 5xxx and wont be a big leap at all.
Even if the 6xxx series of cards is not a huge leap, waiting for them to hit the market will prolly result in a price drop of the 5xxx cards. Personally, that's what I'm waiting for to upgrade fomr my 4890.
But as mentioned, if you can't wait, the the 1GB 460GTX currently seems to be the sweet spot.
listen... if you keep waiting until the 6ooo series coming out... perhaps by that time nvidia will have something under their sleeves... then what? you wait again? come on... technology never stops innovating... as long as you have the money for it.. your hd 3850 is pretty old and worst than my previous 8800gt... go and buy gtx 460.... i suggest you x wait...
