I've decided to skip a 760 and wait for a 860 or 880 as I want something to last 5-6 years.

I doubt the 860 will last 5 years when it comes out.

8800's no longer supported.

SLI 9800's instead. Can probably get med/high in most last gen games.

8800GT Sli should be enough for every game except Crysis 3 and CoD:Ghosts, which actually require actual DX11 hw.

But the 8800GT is indeed old now.

That's hopeless then, AMD drops support very early.

Damn, you still have an 8800GT running? Mines hit the dirt so many years ago. I feel like I jumped into a time machine back to 2007. Those things were selling like hotcakes when it was released. Also that 640MB version of the 8800GTS.
