HD 7870 overclocked to 1.25 ghz would be on par with HD 7950 boost (925 mhz).

Oh...that's not good...why the companies with a good product always have a bad customer service? mad.gif on my country there are a few companies which don't have a good customer support, like A**S....

back on topic, my vote is Sapphire HD 7870 XT.

most games don't suffer from frame latency issues. of the games affected the frame latency issues have been addressed by AMD in 13.2 beta for games like skyrim, borderlands 2 and guild wars 2. AMD' s new memory manager due some time this month will improve frame latency in DX11 and DX10 games in general. games affected like Hitman Absolution and Farcry 3 will be resolved by that update. so its not a major issue.

I bought the 7870 over the holidays and was very happy with it. Overclocked easily and I could play any game I wanted clean. I only bought my 7950s because I got a good deal on them and one of my office mates one up'ed me with his 7950 a day after I bought my 7870.

I will also mention that my Gigabyte 7870 GHZ ed. was a very quiet card and ran cool.

So yeah buy the 7870 unless you can find a good deal, or decide to part with more money, then the 7950 is worth it.

Might get shunned for this, but two 7770s in Crossfire mode are cheaper than a 7950 and almost right on par with the performance of that same card... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/HD_7750_7770_CrossFire/2.html

You can get two GHz Edition 7770s for $240 versus $290 for one 7950 here in the States.

EDIT: You could even get two Asus' 7770 GHz Edition with 2GB for $320, and that would probably boost your performance even more. thumb.gif
