Australian Government's student rebate, I doubt the US has something similar.

If your current GPU isn't cutting it for you then yes, I would upgrade if you're looking to get the performance YOU want.

However, if you're just gaming at 1080p then I wouldn't really worry about it. But then again, if you're not getting the frames YOU want, then upgrade.

But if it's working for you, then maybe invest in a nice 1200p+ monitor then once prices drop snag yourself a 7970. It's just depends if you want the extra performance. Or even need it at that. 6970 is still a nice card, and Crossfire is still a very considerable option with optimal performance gains.
