This thread really should be locked, lol. The 7950 doesn't put the 670 to shame nor does the 670 but the 7950 to shame, they are pretty much the same damn performance. All comes down to preference, that's it.

Agreed, Galaxy 670 GC that OP bought is a good card, it is slightly faster than 7950 that OP was originally thinking to get, but slightly more expensive which is logical.

I want to congratulate OP with his purchase. Enjoy your card man. Happy gaming. thumb.gif

Why were you debating with me then. You just said what I have been trying to say the whole time.

Oh wow so now you agree, You didnt try very well, all i saw was accusations of fanboyism and bashing other members posts. Read again what i said in Post 77 GTX 670 GC is about 15% faster than that particular msi 7950 card out of the box.

And everybody saw that it was about 12% more expensive after rebate so IMO its a good choice.

I have to agree. Like I said earlier in the thread, yeah I know I didn't get the best deal (even if I was getting a 670 I could have found it cheaper somewhere else), but it runs everything I play on high settings, and I'm happy.

This thread just took on a life of its own! rolleyes.gif
