If nVidia is delaying their GPUs, I wonder if ATI/AMD is going to be forced to delay their 7000 series as well. Something to think about.
Rumor has it that AMD may be using a 'different' 28nm process for the first 7000 series cards. Specifically 28nm low power with HKMG. Of course this is per [SA] so some would dismiss it out of hand. I think AMD will release the lower end / lower power cards first on this process, and the high end / high power cards in 2012 when the other 28nm process has had the issues worked out.

Well you already have a 6950, I have a 4850. Were not exactly in the same situation. I'm sure that 6950 will be good till the 8XXX cards come out.

Also I can't simply upgrade to DDR3, I need a whole new mobo for that and considering they don't sell LGA775 motherboards any more I would need to upgrade to a whole new socket which would mean to upgrade to DDR3 I would need a whole new CPU and motherboard.

I know DDR3 is dirt cheap right now, I really wish my MOBO supported it.
