I remember reading in TOMs hardware that its really not worth upgrading the GPU until something is available a few rungs up on their GPU ladder i.e. moving from a 7950 to 8800GTX or a >100% improvement.
Given the cost of GPUs its really not worth switching them every time something slightly better comes along (unless you dont care about money, benching, or are a reviewer). Otherwise you'd be buying a new GPU every 6months!
