My System Specs

Default

True enough. The jump from the 5000series to the 6000series was negligable. Aside from a name change (i.e. 5870 = 6970) the increase in performance wasn't that great. The biggest change was when AMD shrank the process and changed the architecture with the 7000series. I'd say it's pretty safe to assume that the gains from an 8000series card wouldn't be a huge improvement over the current lineup anyways.
