Default sell gtx 285 or not?

sorry i dont watch any news about video card...

i noticed that price of gtx 285 is almost never chagned... correct? i mean i bought mine for almost 400cdn back in the late of spring...

i also heard that nvidia will release new 3xx series soon... but when?

is it recommend to replace gtx 285 with hd5870 which is about average 10% better than gtx285 and has same price of 400ish?

Not worth it at all, wait a month or so for GT300/Fermi and then see how prices are.
