As stupid as it sounds but a game coming out in November or later might need
a video card which does not even exist today!

That happened a few times with various versions of Quake. I remember
ordering one version along with a mate and we both had to order the latest
3DFX card with Open GL at the same time.

If the game is the reason you are upgrading I would wait until it comes out
personally. You may find many current cards do not work with it.
