I just sold my GTX 285 for $50 less than I bought my 5870 for. Its amazing what some people will pay for an older (but still very good) card.Unless if I can sell my current card, so I can pay less than $250 of difference for a new HD 5870, I will keep my card, with my standard resolution, I can even run Crysis maxed with 4x FSAA and never dips below 27fps which feels very playable compared to other games running at the same FPS which are none. Even my brother's in law HD 3870 is enough for him, he can play Need for Speed Shift maxxed at the same resolution as mine (1280x0124) plus 4x FSAA, also uses the same settings for Resident Evil 5.
Consoles are driving development, hence not much need in better performance yet.
