this is my advice to you, buy the best that you are willing to afford then sit back and have fun and stop worring about what comes out another day. If you sit around and wait you will never have any fun because with tech there will alway be something bigger and better right around the corner, just have fun now.

Completely agree - that was my point

If you go back you can find people saying people are crazy for buying the 8800gtx when it launched because of both reasons -

Teraflop technology? The 280 Series doesn't offer such. So when will the card come out featuring such technology? What is the code name or product I.D. name assuming one is in development from NVIDIA?

Only GTX280 SLI is an option for me otherwise my 8800GTX SLI setup does equally or better then single GTX280 and since GTX280 has no new features, no point of upgrading for me.

I still prefer 8800GTX over 9800GTX.

GTX280 is rated at 980GFLOPS which is pretty damn close. BUT you have to remember that everyone rates FLOPS in theorhetical not real world since it can change per programing.

There is your 4 teraflops

I assume that you want this for Folding or some other odd CUDA work.

The GT200b is below 500mm2

Anyways to answer the OP's question. No new generational leaps for another 18 months unless ATi pulls something out of the bag so feel free to buy the 280. Thinking about it to get the most out of the 280, you buy near enough release day and then sell when the next generation is coming out, well that's what I've been doing, it works for me.
