    AMD Radeon 7970

    Just read the preview on Toms Hardware. It's the fastest single gpu card atm although it won't be on the market until some time after January 6th. Prices expected to be around $550.

    I'll wait until Kepler gets released.

    Doubtful
    Can't wait for GTX 680 so it'd be better than 7970.

    I think that's pretty good value for a starting price, considering it offers around 30-40% extra performance than a 6970 or a GTX 580 for a few extra dollars, and considering that the 600 series won't come out for a while.

    They are skipping the 600 series and labeling them all as 7xx.
