I hope so, but every time im getting ready to take the plunge I hear about this stuff!
I'm to much of a frugal person to just buy and be happy
I'm going to guess and say performance will be 45% better from 7970 to 8970 and price will be about $25 more base price...
Do what I do, always skip a generation, then it makes it worth to upgrade if you compare the performance.
I went from a HD 2900 to HD 3870 to HD 4870 (x2 Crossfire) skipped HD 5870 and got a HD 6970. Skipped the HD 7970 and might move in for the HD 8970 kill.
