Hello guys.

I've heard some rumors that the HD 7950/7970 GPUs are going to be released on January 6th from $350-$450. I want to wait honestly, but I don't have any spare GPUs lying around and I won't really be able to play video-games for long periods of time past January (rough schedule) until March or even June.

Simpy put, what is the best GPU under $120? (was thinking 'bout this one) I want something that can run Deus Ex: Human Revolution max'd out @ 1900x1080, no anti-aliasing if that is not asking for too much. Or should I not waste my money and be more patient (if the price rumors are correct, that $120 card + 7950/70 could potentially equal price of GTX 580)?

I would wait for a price drop on a Radeon HD 6950 card, maybe stock over clocked (MSI Twin Frozr III or Sapphire Toxic). I'm using the 6950 myself playing Deus Ex, running just fine.
