My System Specs

All depends on the way you look at it, from a sheer performance level, they are "techically" obsolete, the newer cards are faster, more efficent, are capable of getting more work done, and produce less heat.

I think it really depends on the user, 2 285 are very fast indeed, but 2 460 or 560ti or better are just that much faster, cost wise for the boost in performance the 460 1gb or 560 448 core seem to be the best in this regard, dual 6850 would be close and who knows how well the 7800 series will do in price/performance.

DX11 has alot of cool features, unfortuantely, the only current game to truly take advantage of a good chunk of it is BF3, and even then it is barely using the best of what DX11 brings.

So obsolete on a technical side, almost there in a performance side, all really just depends on what you are doing with them, what games, what apps and such :)
