Which card should i get? 7970, 7950 - artifacting problems

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The 7950 DirectCU II I just got is artifacting so i need a replacement. There is one more in stock but it will take a day to get it.
There is a Sapphire HD7950 Vapor-X and a Sapphire HD7970 for $40 more in stock. Which ever one i get i will overclock so i was just wondering, once overclocked which will give me the best performance on a 1920x1080 screen. It would be great if you could order all three of them from best to worst. Thanks guys biggrin.gif

Arent sapphire cards voltage locked?
Make sure that it's not, because a locked tahiti is disappointing.

There's an artifacting bug right now with the AMD drivers, your card is probably fine?

what drivers are you using. in which application is the HD 7950 artifacting . does it flicker in the desktop, cause those might be driver issues. are you running at stock speeds.
