Sorry to link to another site but they have info on that page. I'm not sure if it's accurate.

Is amd/ati still the way to go? Should one go with a 6870 still or will the new card still be better when considering bang for the buck?

Tom's Hardware would give you more information as to certain graphics card price and details.

Let me throw in the age old argument of waiting versus buying now. AMD is due to release the 7000 series cards sometime in the first quarter of 2012 if they meet their target date. If that happens you can bet in a month or two you can get a 6950 or maybe even a 6970 for the $200 budget. Hmmmmm...I looking to upgrade too and right now I'm waiting.....
