    Well I myself have a p8z77-m + i5 3450,and have been contemplating whether to get a 7850/70 or even a 7950. I think personally ill wait for the 660ti to be released and take it from there.

    I'd consider saving for a more powerful PSU, even with the power design of new cards, that PSU will probably get a little stressed out under gaming.
