If you need a card now then I say go for it.
Kepler is at minimum 3 months away. That's a long time in the computer world. AMD has put out a great product with Tahiti. I say drop your money on the 7970, or, if you want to save a few bucks, go for the 7950. GTX580 performance with 6950 power consumption levels. Quite impressive.
