Hey Guys, I just got some gift certificates to newegg for X-mas and they are burning a hole in my pocket.

I just started playing SWTOR, and I definitely need a graphics card upgrade, as I'm using a Radeon HD 4830. (I just ran benchmarks and I'm getting P6465 in FutureMark, and 11701 in 3DMark 2006.) I'm getting I'm looking at a 6850, as that is within my price range, power supply (Cooler master Extreme Power Plus 460), and will still run SWTOR maxed.

In researching, I saw that AMD is pushing out the 7000 series very soon, and the general suggestion is to wait as the prices on the 6000 series will drop. I'm curious what everyone thinks the new price point will be. I don't think waiting 2-3 weeks for a $20 price drop is worth it, but a $40-50 price drop might be.

Thanks for your input!
