If you're looking to upgrade soon, then go with an ATI card as there's no point going for current Nvidia cards, but if you are wanting to maybe get an Nvidia card too, then wait until the end of March when the next Nvidia cards are released, because ATI cards will most likely go down in price too.

I've had my share of problems with NVidia drivers and cards. I am running an NVIdia currently.

It's been more than one, but who is counting?

Unless the OP is getting a laptop, it's actually the 400 series he'd be waiting for.
