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.
Totally agree, I have a ATI 4870 right now and I love it. I bought it because of the price at the time. If NVIDIA can give me a similar offering to the 5870 or 5850 with prices around what ATIs are right now I'd buy it. I just can't justify $500 for a video card every six months. I really don't care which card I would get, I have no fanboyism to ATI or NVIDIA I just buy what is the best performance for the best price.
