We can not forget the this web site had benchmarks done and they were rather favorable. Left for Dead will run? If there are problems, will I have to kill someone to get it fixed? Please I need feedback, positive ones also because I live in Brazil and this card will cost me 1600 bucks.

Thanks a lot in advance
I would wait, of course. At least wait until there are some recent releases available on Linux, then look at the benchmarks. Buying a GPU now while predicting how it's going to turn out won't do you any favors. Wait, and then buy the right one for cheaper.
