Default Is it worth it?

Hey all,

As you can see from the specs in my sig, my machine's getting pretty long in the tooth (especially in the gfx department).

My question: is upgrading to a GTX 275/285 worth it at this point if I game at 1280x1024? Are there going to be any games out there that really push the limits (other than the infamous crysis) of what my machine can do anytime soon, or would an upgrade be somewhat of a waste?
