Hey whatever makes you happy, go for it
I don't agree with it being a wise or necessary decision to buy a 480GTX when you can have a substantially faster 2x5850 or 5970 for just around the same price of a 480GTX. Even if I was only able to buy Nvidia for some reason (probably psychological
), I would probably wait for the refresh. But if you've already made up your mind, then go for it and be happy with it!
There might be enough of a delay before i get a GTX480 that I'll be able to trade-up. BFG was willing to let me trade-up a GTX280 for a GTX285 or for a GTX295.
So that requires detective work in order to find out when the first rev is.
