There will be better GPUs available in the second half of this year after TSMC's 20nm fabrication process node gets going to replace the 28nm node that GPUs have been using for the past two years. AMD's 28nm Tahiti first appeared in the Radeon HD7970 on January 9, 2012. This GPU is still used (with slightly higher core and memory clock speeds) in the current Radeon R9-280X. NVidia's 28nm GK104 debuted in the GeForce GTX680 in limited quantities to reviewers on March 22, 2012. This GPU is still used (with the same clock speeds) in the current GeForce GTX770.
If you need an upgrade now, then buy now. If you can wait until 20mm GPUs arrive, then wait. Here's an editorial by Josh Walrath at PC Perspective that sums things up.

Monitor resolution is 1680x1050 because my 1080P monitor just crapped out on me... speaking of which, I'm now also in the market for a good 27" monitor, and I'm interested in g-sync.
