The 7950 deal is pretty good, so that would be a nice thing to jump on. I'd like to see how a 9870 will look.


Is there some specific sale/deal going on with it right now?

AMD will probably price their cards similar to what Nvidia has, maybe higher as they did when they introduced the 7970.

So, 9970, around $600 to $700

Or more likely price it at nothing because it won't exist because AMD=FINISHED

What I have now is igpu on Haswell.
I was originally going to wait until after the release of 9970/50 for the prices to drop on cards, but I don't think the price of 7970 will drop any further than $270 for the foreseeable future. U was originally thinking of getting 760, but if it's only $20 or so difference...

Any thoughts?

This will indeed be the case if the 9970 outperforms the 780. AMD will follow the price trend that Nvidia has set, unfortunately.

Well the 7970 is a lot better, so for $20 more it's a no brainier unless you need something specific that only Nvidia offers.
