The part of my brain that controls things like biting nails and reading Reddit and Digg is telling me to get my credit card out. The other part that I don't often like to listen to is telling me I don't play any games at the moment that justify the purchase.

The reference for these isn't that bad I thought? Cooler is fairly effective etc.

My 8800GT works just fine on everything I play at the moment. Nothing new that's come out has raised any interest so far this year.

Makes for depressing reading. I really only play L4D at the moment. Farcry 2 is also installed, but is just way to annoying to be fun, drive 10 minutes to pick up a mission, drive 10 minutes to the mission, drive back and get another mission yawn.

The 48xx series has been awesome, people are complaining that the ATI drivers are baggy but I really havent noticed this at all!!
I just enjoy playing Crysis at higher than 320 x 240

Why not go with a 5770 instead? DX11 support as well as more efficient power consumption and faster clock speeds

I own two x 4890's and they are absolutely faultless, Crysis 1920x1080 Enthusiast settings and it runs very smooth indeed.
Word of warning:
1) They run very hot, around 50c idle, and peak at 80-83c when on full load.
2) They are very very very noisy cards when on full load, the noise they make is immense, never had a card that loud.
Saying that, I wouldn't trade mine for any of the newer 5xxx series just for DX11 and Eyefinity, when the cards I've got trumps all.
