I'm perfectly aware of that,

I 100% would NOT go with the 580, that much is clear. As for the Hawk, meh not 100% on whether I would or not. I'd personally sell the 460's as a pair and then upgrade to a 7950...

so if i had the budget for 670s or 7950s i would have gone for them as it was a simple solution but i cant ... i just wana sell/replace my 460s while they cans till get me some money biggrin.gif
so if for example u have to suggest someone between a 7870 HAWK (which r great OCer) or 580GTX or 460 SLI what u will recommend???

OP which country are you from ?
can suggest good deals if possible.

the price diff on Sapphire HD 7950 boost vs HD 7870 Hawk in the US is 20 bucks after shipping and mail in rebate.

With overclocking the HD 7950 at 1.15 Ghz will be 25 - 30% faster than HD 7870 (1.25 Ghz) and match GTX 670 (1.3 Ghz) . definitely worth if the cost difference is not much.

also do not hurry. the never settle game bundle should start selling from early november.
