Also I guess AMD has no plans to release any new GPU's until the end of the year though, so boo. I don't think there's going to be anything new from anyone until we start seeing the consoles, so they can show those up.
Unless you think I should just stick with the 6850 for this round of next gen games.
Going from a 6850 to a 6950 or a 7850 doesn't seem like the best way to spend money. Nvidia and AMD have both delayed their new GPU line to Q4 of this year so waiting for new options for a GPU will take a while to be available.
Not sure what I'd do in your situation myself apart from waiting. Currently I have a GPU that is far behind enough that I don't care if a new GPU is on the way if I buy one now.
I guess i'll join the waiting game then if you think it's best to wait till then. If it's not worth dumping cash into it then i'll just wait till Q4 before I spend anything. I'll just have to see how my rig suffices though when it comes to the new round of games for this next gen because if it doesn't do too well then i'll upgrade at the nearest convenience.
But I should be able to max out most anything anyway so it shouldn't be a problem for now.

Nothing coming from the PS4 is impressive. We've seen tech demos from it mostly and a wise gamer should know by now tech demos don't mean shit unless it's a live in-engine gameplay demo.
I feel my freak out was unwarranted. I might not be too threatened by this next gen. I hope.
I'm not going to worry. Optimization this next generation for PC releases better be good though. If Indie games are better optimized than a AAA release then they have something to strive for because GTA IV is the new low and will be if Rockstar screws up with V.
