GPU Black Friday deal?

I'm upgrading my RAM from g.skill Rimjaws 4gb to 8gb (deal on newegg)
Upgrading CPU from an athlon x3 440 to phenom II 955 (deal on new egg)

Anyone see any good deals on GPU's?

Currently I'm on a 5770, what is comparable to AMDs 6950 in terms of Geforce? Is it ok to mix Geforce with an AMD processor? I know a lot of folks have some opinions on this. I've usually thought that AMD + ATI graphics is always vs intel + GF. But if it really doesn't matter I'd like to step into the realm of GF just because I've heard it's been stronger overall compared to ATI. Anything at the moment is better than a 5770 =P.

  1. nVidia isn't outright better than AMD, they are very competitive. Also there's no real proof to show that AMD CPU's are better with AMD cards.

    nVidia's equivalent of the HD 6950 would be the GTX 560Ti.

    Is the price comparison to the 6800 series ok that I could buy the 6800 series? What is comparable tot eh 6800 series, say the 6850 or 6870 in nvidia's standards?

    Don't feel like shelling out 250-300 on a 6950

    The HD 6850 is about the same as a GTX 460 1GB and the HD 6870 is about the same as a GTX 560.
