There will definitely be new GPUs released or close to release by summer. I don't know the price, but it will definitely be more expensive than the current generation. (Nvidia's and AMD's flagship GPU will probably be around $500). The price might be lower if Nvidia and AMD releases their GPUs around the same time. If they're really expensive, I'll probably stick to the HD 7970, which will go down further when the new GPUs come out.
