I've always belonged in that same catagory. This time around I'm going to try and hold off for 6-7 months after the cards come out. The price always drops quite a bit, plus you start seeing non-reference designs with better/quieter cooling solutions.
I loved my HD4870 (I still prefer NVIDIA's AA implementation more though), but the reference HS/Fan sucked A$$.
I wouldn't mind going with another NVIDIA part, but I'll hold off to see how the price wars settle out.
