    I'm currently using a Nividia GTX 295 and looking to upgrade my GPU I don't mind waiting but what are some upcoming graphics cards that would be worth it to replace it. Or any sites that has news on future video cards as well.

    Operating System
    MS Windows 7 64-bit SP1
    CPU
    Intel Core i7 920
    Bloomfield 45nm Technology
    RAM
    6.00 GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 714MHz (9-9-9-24)

    Motherboard
    EVGA 132-BL-E758 (Socket 423)

    I guess AMD are releasing HD 7000 series while Nvidia are releasing GTX 600 series.

    AMD
    Nvidia

    GeForce series 600 has been moved to Q1 2012, as they had some problems with the manifacturing process, iirc.

    Will PCIE 3.0 cards work on 2.1 slots?

    Yes, PCI-E 3.0 is backward compatible with PCI-E 2.1/2.0. You are just loosing the additional bandwidth (although the current graphic card are no where near using 100% of bandwidth of PCI-E 2.0).

    So a PCI-E 3.0 card on PCI-E 2.1/2.0 slot suffers about 1~2% performance lost. Not something you need to worry about.

    Both Radeon HD 7000 series and GeForce 600 series are going to be delayed, since 28 nm fabrication process is still not matured.
