People that cannot wait for their new parts should probably buy a 7970.

For me, there's nothing my 580s or 590 won't run fine, so I can wait a bit to see what the better part is.
intel 990X + 2 X EVGA 3GB GTX580 + 3 X Acer GD235Hz
3D Vision Surround

Rig 2:
intel 2500K + NVIDIA GTX590 + Dell 3007 WFPHC
