Wow, hate it when these pretty-good deals start showing up on video upgrades only 6 months after I've built a system that I deluded myself into thinking was fairly future-proof. My 6-core AMD box is running two 6870's in crossfire on a 1080p monitor---more than adequate for most games, but I suspect swapping in a single 3Gb 7950 should give me noticeably better performance at full resolution (without the occasional SLI image glitchiness) and, I'm betting, probably somewhat less power consumption/heat than two 6870's. But the deal would probably have to drop closer to $200 to make me think about biting.
