please add additional options, if possible:
No - Had GPUs, will keep mining
No - Had FPGAs, will keep mining
No - Had mix of both, will keep mining
Yes - new to bitcoin and going ASIC

I know these will likely have few responses but I am interested in if anyone is considering those options.
You could condense the first 3 into "I will mine with what I have now (before ASICS) for a long time!"

I know that once I move to ASIC, I will keep GPU mining in the winter to avoid using my oil heater. Even in the summer, I will likely keep my 5830 single unit mining.

getting out

i see interest in bitcoin as a whole falling drastically w/ introduction of specialized equipment for 'mining'

@ current price, i'll keep the GPUs running until 4m diff

oh, seeing as how jeff got his ASIC, I imagine that korean node that's been reporting blocks probably has one too

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
