So it looks like next gen GPUs from AMD are coming at the end of the year. HD 9000 Series?
Might hold on before upgrading for a little while longer, it think Smile

“The Sea Islands codename encompasses the PS4 chip, as well as the new mobile chips announced at CES, and the Bonaire GPU found in the Radeon HD7790. I bring this up because it shows the people inside AMD continue to work hard, long hours to deliver great products amongst the turmoil shown in the press.The next generation of graphics cards -- Volcanic Islands -- is coming this year and shaping up nicely. When you name products after places, it leads to interesting thoughts about where to hold events surrounding that namesake product. Typically places that are cheap to get travel to internationally for a worldwide congregation are preferred, so I'm off to renew my passport on the off chance I'm headed to Reykjavik later this summer. But I sure as hell wouldn't complain about being sent to Honolulu, either.”

I will be waiting now. I almost bought a gtx670 but then heard that gtx700 series was out this year. I will now wait till both are out.

Only want a new card because I'm doing a custom loop and don't want to buy a block for my 6950 and then have to get a new one if I upgrade card.

The GTX 700 series will be out very soon. From what I heard, it's already been released in Asia, but I'm not sure how true that is. The new AMD "HD 9000" series, appartently will be a completely new architecture and a die shrink as well, so I'm very interested in how that's going to perform!
