My System Specs


Note that the last few suggestion apparently didn't read your resolution..

Your resolution determines how much work the card has to do.
If you were to go for a new monitor and be at 1920x1080 I would agree with them, if your sticking to your current res then most of these will be wasted (560 / 6870 or higher).

Also on second hand cards, there should already be a good supply of 460's or 5770's available second hand due to their age.
Anyone looking at a 7970 (the only new card announced yet) will probably have something that goes beyond your needs anyway. So IMO there is no point in waiting if your considering this option.
