I am putting together my first gaming PC and i have a few questions...

With the introduction of th GTX680 in the market, will AMD prices be falling anytime soon and by roughly how much?

Should i buy a 7870 now or wait, hoping that the 7950 will drop in price?

How much of a performance difference is there between the 7870 and the 7950?

I am a massive noob so any and all advice will be greatly appreciated

We don't know what AMD will do with thier pricing , they can go one of two ways.
1. They see that there is a short supply of the 680's and no mention of any other cards just yet so they may just drop the price of the 7970 because they now know what the price of the direct competition will be.
2. The low price of the 680 may be seen as a real threat that the other models that Nvidia will release will be priced low as well and AMD will be high priced across the board , so they may jump in with price cuts now to get a head start.
