Too early. We don't know any solid details about the 7xxx series or gtx 600 series. Its all rumors right now.

Not sure as I havent played that game. Depends on what resolution you play at. Currently my 6870 is fine for 1920x1080 but I picked up 2 more monitors for 4800x900 eyefinity and the 6870 doesnt cut it. I will be picking up a 7950 as soon as I can afford one and selling the 6870.
