Also, is waiting for a non-reference card worth doing over a reference model?
If you wait, you will end up asking this same question when the next gen cards are out.
Just grab a 680, it's a nice card. Certainly a big improvement over your card (and mine btw). You'll be good for the next 4 years. At least I know I will. I had my 8800GT for about 5 years now, and it's still running all new games. Not very well, but it's still good.
