I currently have a GT430 in my computer. My system specs are as follows I5-2500K, G.Skills Ripjaws 8gb 1600mhz, 650w Corsair PSU and my case is the Rosewill Challenger. The computer is for gaming and I play a large assortment of games including Skyrim, The Witcher 2, BattleField3, and Star Wars the Old Republic. Originally I planned to get a 560ti (or 6950) in 2 months or so and then after another 2 months get a second and SLI them. But seeing some of the benchmarks from the new 7970. I was wondering if id be better off waiting for and just getting one 7950 or 7970. Im still open to all suggestions and the purchase date for anything 500$ above would be about 4 months from now while most things below would be about 2 months from now.

If I had the money I would go for the 7970 but you will have to wait. If I had the money to even get two of the 560 ti's I would but that is for the now thing ya the 7970 or 7950 are looking really good. Good luck to ya

In that case would you recommend the 7970 or the 7950 (how much is even known about the 7950?) and is their a pricing speculation for either havnt seen any 7970 around yet as its only been really paper launched.

If you don't mind waiting and having multiple graphics cards you could wait for HD7870/7850 launch and see how they stack up performance wise (and price). If nothing else, prices on GTX 560ti might come down.
