Just got the 770 a couple months ago on release. I used to be a x60 kind of guy but I decided to splurge a bit. To be honest there aren't that many games which fully strees these newer high end cards just yet.

Next year, I think I may just upgrade to a $150+ GPU to hold me over for a bit(Assuming my CPU is still fine) until I get around to building another computer.

GTX 780 SC ACX would be fun to mess with, but I already have a 7990.

Probably the 860 mid range. I am using a GTX 470 now and although I am tempted by the GTX 760 I know I am better off waiting until next gen since in reality I don't need a new video card right now. I may end up going to the next tier higher than a 860 depending on how next gen cards deal with next gen games.

Whatever is available in about 4-5 years.

I've already had my new computer for a year now and it's not slowing down anytime soon. It still feels brand new to me. I won't need an upgrade for at least 3 more years, and at that time, I'll probably just bypass it and play on medium settings for a while, then low for a while, then in 5 years build a new machine.

Already went from a 470 to 770. In 3 years I'll get a GTX 1070 (after I SLI that 770).

I just can't justify spending $500+ upfront, on a single video card. It doesn't even do anything on it's own, completely useless.

I spent a pretty penny on my plasma but at least it's fully functional on it's own, is multipurpose, and can be enjoyed by multiple people simultaneously. That was enough to convince me.
