To put things in perspective, me/my brother are used to big performance jumps, and I only upgrade about every 2 years. Athlon X2 5000+ BE (3ghz 1st-gen Athlon) to Phenom II X4 955. 2600XT, to 4650, to 5770. I think my bro would be underwhelmed with a 50% performance gain; we got about 20% gaming performance increase just upgrading the CPU (with 5770 graphics). And then a big performance hit going from 1440x900 to 1920x1080. Time to get a beast graphics card, not some bang/buck mediocrity king.
Another way to think of it - the difference between 26FPS and 42FPS is unplayable vs pretty decent gaming experience. That's $130 wasted if you can't play all the games you want at whatever settings you want (performance/$ is 0 in that case). http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7850-and-7870-review/19

sorry but you are looking only at the performance gain. what about performance per dollar? jumping from 5770 to 6850 would give you 40% performance increase with 80% (2 to 1 ratio) increase with price, but jumping on the 7850 would give you 100% performance increase for 300% increase in price (3 to 1 ratio). your call what is better.

The Radeon HD 7870 will cost $349 and the HD 7850 will be available at $249. The Radeon HD 7870 is 22% cheaper than the HD 7950, yet just 8% slower on average. Moreover, the Radeon HD 7850 is almost 30% cheaper than the HD 7870 when it was on average just 14% slower.

The Radeon HD 7850 was 9% faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but it also costs 9% more. Compared to the previous-gen HD 6970, the HD 7850 is 7% slower, yet 29% cheaper.

The Radeon HD 7870 isn’t a bad value either as it matches the GeForce GTX 570 for price while delivering on average 18% more performance at 1920x1200 and consuming less power. Still the Radeon HD 7850 looks to be the best value choice here and perhaps the best value we've seen so far in a Radeon HD 7000 series graphics card. AMD expects cards to become available in volume after March 19th.

A 6970 can dip as low as 30fps in BF3 at High settings (not Ultra) with no AA at 1080p. I sure as hell wouldn't want a 6800 for that.

Also I don't think the 7870 has terrible price/performance seeing as after overclocking it'd easily match an overclocked GTX 580 for $100+ less. Maybe I'm being to logical or something

Hmm... GTX 580 performance at a $350 price tag? I don't see the bad here... These cards will only need a tiny OC to out perform the GTX 580 (according to benchmarks). So really its a all around win imo for a mid range card to be beating out the competitors previous generation flagship card, while saving $150.

I think the introductory price points are about right, giving what the cards can do, and the fact that they are newer tech. Everyone screaming for the price of the 7870 to debut at around 250-300 for a card that is brand new and closer in speed to a GTX 580 then a HD 6970 is delusional or wishing for too much.

They only thing that bothers me is that the cards are geting much faster very quick but it doesn't seem we need this much power, looking at the games that are coming out and what they require. So I see no need to upgrade from a 6xxx or 5xx series card to the next gen 7xxx and 7xx cards, and just hold off. Or later ad another 5xx or 6xxxx card for cheap of I decide to upgrade.

But I guess for hardcore benchers and power seekers you have to be excited about these cards that Amd is putting out and what Nvidia most likely will be putting out.

Yeah I read your entire post. Did you read the entire paragraph? It's highlighted now and gives some insight to your question.
