I have an issue trusting AMD with a $1000+ card, I build amd systems for my nephew's and recommend them when it fits the budget constraints but they haven't won my mind over. If they release an amazing product that beats my ideal 30series I will switch to a custom version, their reference besides the Radeon 7 have been trash to me.Just don't ever let your wife hear you say she "talked you into it", unless of course you have a death wish.
It does sound like a) you're convinced you'll be going green and b) you don't mind paying a bit of a premium which is fair enough. No reason to wait for AMD in that case.
In my case, i've waited a few months already, and I tend to switch between AMD and nVidia cards, and I have a very busy end Q4 at work ahead of me. No reason for me not to wait.
