Default GeForce 8800GTS G92 512MB vs GTX 280

I recently built a new PC, now over the last week or so I have found that lots of new hardware is out and it isn't too expensive in some cases. I chose to go for dual core and now regret it and now I find that I can get a 9800GTX for less than I payed for my 8800GTS. Anyway, apparently the GTX 280 is way better than my 8800GTS and so is the 4870. My question is, how far behind am I already now and will it be long before I can no longer just buy a game and max out the settings. I know this seems like a slightly pointless thread but I'm feeling a bit annoyed at the moment

Cough 4870...I have a single one in my box at the moment and I want to marry it.

Anyone here have the power to legal bind my video card to me through marriage?

Yes I love her.

Yes my card is a female.

I have same card and am currently happy with it. Sure there are other cards cheaper than what I paid for it originally but thats just the way video cards are. If I were you I would upgrade at same time I am. I am upgrading in January because alot of it will be cheaper. You will probably get a great deal on a 4870 and maybe even a 4870x2. No game coming out before then will cripple your graphics with that card. If worse comes to worse just set graphics to medium or high instead of ultra high.
