I'd wait until the 7770
The price is rumored to be around 140-150, which will only be around 30-50 more dollars than a 6770
Plus, this card is an actual upgrade from the previous 6770, instead of just a re-branded 5770

The 7770 sounds like a pretty lucky number. thumb.gif
I'll probably go with a 7850 if it comes out.

buy a 6870 today. or get something better when the rest of the new cards come out. from what we've seen of it (7770), it won't be any stronger than a gtx460 so it's not a huge enough upgrade to wait for. it appears to be weaker than a 6870. wait a couple months to spend the same money on a weaker card? not a good idea. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161389

7770 should be equal to a 6870 (if naming conventions continue)

7870 should be a die-shrunk 6970 (again if they continue).

Theoretically these should perform like beasts, as the die shrink should enable higher overclocks.

Either find yourself a really cheap, non-reference 6950 now and oveclock the hell outta it, or wait for the 7800 series. This way you'll see really large performance gains.

This is what we all expected, but according to what I'm about to post, neither are the case: http://www.overclock.net/t/1193150/amd-radeon-hd-7770-video-card-is-stronger-than-people-thought/0_20 - stronger than people thought, yet a hair slower than 6850. mature drivers will put it almost as fast as a 6870. it does have a very high clock speed though.

http://cdn.overclock.net/7/71/7145026a_price.jpeg - 7870 if anything looks like a 6950 die shrink. also, it's confirmed to be using gcn (only the low end 7670's and such will be non-gcn chips).

If I were the OP, I'd go for 7870 at least. Only thing is it will cost $300. 6870 or 6950 will be much better to get now than wait until march for a weaker card (7770).
