Hey guys the title pretty much says it all but also, would it be better to wait til the 600/700 series comes out? (for the 700 there ive read around they might do what they did with the 300 series and just skip them but never know)
Some of the AMD 7000 series are out now (7970 and 7950) and we are still waiting for Nvidia. Both of the AMD cards that are out now are high end and it may take a little bit more time to get the rest out. Whether or not to wait is entirely up to you but at this pace it may be a few more weeks or even a couple of months. Then it will again be up to you if you want to jump right in or wait some more to see what models end up being released. It always seems to me that when I jump in and buy something they end up releasing some more models that I may have wanted instead of what I bought.
However if you were to buy a video card right now then the 560Ti is what I would get. It is one level above the 6870 acording to this chart.
