Changed my mind tho would much rather wait and see what the custom cooled ones cost after price drop.
I would have waited too, but I am returning my noisy as hell Gigabyte 7850. The fans would rattle occationally, and you could hear a Wrrrr sound when they were at 20% speed.
(this week is the last week I could have returned it.) Would have replaced, but so many other people were having problems, I am will just avoid all Gigabyte products wth fans again, thus I had to eat teh $40 restock and $10 return to newegg.)
That being said, I was hopping to get a 7950 for $400, but the prices didn't drop, so I saw a 7970 at $460 (no shipping / tax from amazon) and figured that would be better than waiting for a custom fan's price to drop.
*side note* coudl have put my old 8800 GTS in until the prices dropped, but didn't feel like switching drivers around.
