With the release of new bitcoin mining hardware, GPU mining (at least for me) isn't worthwhile anymore.

Maybe 8 months ago, I had a few cards mining.
4770, 5770, 5830, 5830, 5850, 5870, 6770, 6850

At the difficulty level at the time, I think I was around 1300mhash/s. Now 1 ASIC miner will use less electricity and put out way more hashing power than that.
