If your going for this sort of card, you want desktop/office type performance with perhaps some media prospects.
You certainly wouldn`t upgrade from a 8400/8500 unless you were needing to spend for the sake of it.
Even still, these cards don`t exactly empty shelves quickly, and to be fair, when the next gen is on the horizon u can pick them up for £20-£30 easy.. or pay more for a 9 series low end card ?
Q4 08 would probably be a viable time for release.
