Not looking to spend more than $500-$600

so what is affordable right now and will last a good long time before I need to upgrade again?

Also should I just wait for the 20XX series to come out and prices to drop? Any one have an idea when that might happen?

Just wait the 680 is still a capable card should get 60fps in most games with medium settings. No card right now is worth its asking price not even close.

I would wait for new cards/prices to drop. Your 680 should be able to handle medium/high settings in most games still in most games as a previous user said, so no need to rush.

OK so your saying it tried to use a blocked port, got blocked, and switched to an unblocked port while waiting for the user to respond? - Why I love Gfaqs.

This. The next generation of GPU's are coming but if you can find a good price on a 1060 6GB or a 1070, jump on it.

might do this, but at the same time... hmmm... I really want pretty graphics on new games. Any idea when the new cards drop? Will it be this year at least? I'm willing to wait until black friday.
