They're not that much better. The new cards from both nVidia and ATi are really current architecture revised to hold more shaders plus improved memory. If RV770 has 480SPs, let's just assume they're all about 50% better for now.
But you're missing my point. My point isn't how much better the new cards would be compared to current cards. After all, what do you buy a GPU for? Given that you're not a graphics designer, you're most likely buying a new GPU for gaming. In that aspect, does it look like the current cards can't hold? There isn't gonna be a game with nearly as much coding as Crysis (it's not badly optimized, it just has an engine too complicated for current hardwares too keep up but has so much potential).
Then of course, to help those of you get better at your waiting game, eVGA and BFG do offer trade-up programs.
