get a single 7950 and overclock it. no need for 2 of them at 1080p. if at a later date new games are released and it stuggles you can get another when the prices drop. either of those cards will max current games.

Do not go for two HD 7950s for 1080p. Unless you have a 120 hz monitor its a waste. The Powercolor PCS+ HD 7950 has a good cooler. keeps the card cool and quiet.

This card can handle 1150 Mhz speeds very well because of its efficient cooler. thumb.gif
