How far away is "just around the corner"? It's possible that cards from the 8 series will start releasing in late 2012, but it looks more likely to be early 2013. And even then, Nvidia's next cards will be just around the corner from AMD's 8 series
The 7 series is a pretty significant jump from the 6 series. An overclocked 7950 can beat out 6950's in crossfire, all for $300 lol. If you find performance lacking with your 6870, jump on a strong 7 series card imo.
