even if you fold, still wait for more price drops.

Looks like my 5850 will still hold up well even when the new gen comes around

if that is true @ that pricepoint it is absolutely insane!!!! definitly upgrading if that's the case!!!

My system seems to still do quite well in terms of gaming, albeit the gpu is aging. A 6770 sounds perfect at this point if it is indeed around the $200 mark or so. Then I can wait till the SB cpu's come out to do my next full upgrade :)

Yep. 6750 and 6770 will be rebranded versions of the Juniper core. The 6850/6870 will be the Barts core, and the 6950/6970 will be the number for the Cayman core. TPU did an article on it fairly recently.

ok so theyre trying to push barts in place of 5800 series, even though its a med range product. less heat for approx same performance wouldnt be too bad, especially if the price tag were to be that of the 5700 series...but i dont think greed will let that slide :D

I think the whole reason why they bumped it up to the 68xx series is exactly that: greed. If they put it in the 67xx series, then consumers would be comparing the prices between the 57xx and 67xx series, and seeing which is the better buy. By bumping it up to the 68xx series, that opens up a larger price bracket for the cards due to comparison with the higher-end 58xx cards.

I'm not saying that the pricing would largely mismatch the performance, though. Consider it consumer greed on my end to want the performance of the Barts core at the price point of the 57xx series
