Given the $50 difference between 7950s and 7870s are 7870s worth getting? There are a few 7870s that I could fit in the SG05.

The Powercolor 7950 that is known to fit is out of stock and I'm not seeing it anywhere else for newegg prices.

Oh clever. I was somewhat curious too.

The 7870 is a great card when overclocked, but you're losing that 1gb of VRAM and lowering overall performance. What resolution are you looking to play at? If you're looking for good performance/price, the 7870 or 7950 are your winners, but that powercolor is hard to find.

The 670 will also be a viable option for you and is scheduled for release next tuesday, if rumor is to be believed. I have a 680 in my SG05, and it's just so beastly, even with an "old" i5 750 @ 3.8. You have to take off the front fan to get the card in, but that's no big deal. I also recommend the Antec H20 620 for cooling. It's fantastic in that case. My CPU temps never pass 60 except after hours and hours of PRIME.

I will be playing at 1920x1080 for the most part. I may upgrade the monitor but more than likely it will be 1920x1080 @120Hz. I probably won't go 3D though. Don't like the glasses.

Based on my setup I think a 7870 will be fine but I suppose it won't hurt to wait a week to see how the 670 does.

Agreed. I run 1920x1080 resolution, and everything is fantastic.

Really, given that the 7870 is still $350+ and the 7950 is $400, the 7950 is the easy pick. I actually really wanted a 7950, but like you, couldn't fit it in my SG05 (though I suspect the XFX "Double D" cooler is 10.24"). Nonetheless, I got impatient, and my tax return came in, so I snatched up that 680 goodness. smile.gif Clocks to 1300. Ridiculous. It just crushes games. It's better than my main SB rig!

Everyone expects the 670 to come in between the 7950 and the 7970 in terms of performance, so that's probably going to be your best purchase. It's already been confirmed that the PCI-E power slots are on top (MSI 670s have been spotted in the wild), so you should have no problems.

Sounds like I'll be going with the 670 smile.gif

I still haven't decided what cooling I want to get. The H60/620 will be best for performance but I do like having the drive cage and slim optical bay. I'm wanting to install this in the bay.
