post #41 of 45
7870 is basically 580 performance. Not to shabby at 350.

For $70-90 more HD 7950 is a much better buy the 7870. More OC headroom, faster @ Stock. I mean 7870 can OC ~ 1.2Ghz + Thats 20%+ OC, HD 7950 can OC 1.2Ghz+ Thats 50%+ OC.

Well you have to realize that some people WANT dual GPU configurations and while it may be only $70-90 for single setups, in Crossfire it's more like $140-180 (or more depending on region, markup, and taxes).

So IMO there's a lot of interpretation to whats the "best card to buy" because it really depends on the user's needs.

Well considering HD 7950 can be 30-40% faster after OC i dont see the point for CF. Also i will tell this once that leave CFX for High end GPU or u will get burned from drivers and stutter.
