IMO at least wait for Nvidia to strike back before jumping on the 5970

I'm thinking the same. I doubt Fermi will disappoint.

Well I wanted something new and since Fermi isn't coming out till after Christmas I decided to go with a 5970. It is very powerful and if Fermi is better I can sell the 5970 for most of what I paid for unless a huge price drop happens in the next few months. I decided to go with the XFX 5970 because of the double lifetime warranty and it was only $648. I can sell 5 of my GPU's which should cover most of the cost if not all (9800 GT, GTX 260 core 216 SC x3, GTX 280).
