by the time the 880m comes out, you'll have the option to wait for the 980m

the truth is there's always new tech coming 'just around the corner'. buy what's available now if you need it, other wise hold-on tight and wait it out :)

the crossfire option will be better in terms of performance (significantly better)

however i'm not sure if that will be upgradable, and if it is I assume it would also cost more...
