Are these worth while or would you still go with the 7950?
Thanks again, and sorry for all the green questions.

The 7870 tahiti cards are fantastic deals. It all depends on what you want to spend. The 7950 is a more powerful GPU and more expensive. A 7870 LE (tahiti) is a winner for the price. As many have said correctly, it is more of a 7930 as it runs the same core as the 7900's. You will not be dissapointed with the results of either. The NVidia options in this price range are fantastic cards as well but, AMD seems to be slightly ahead in the price/performance race.

Ya i7 is useless for your needs. The 7950 is a good deal with 2 games. But you already have the parts? If so there is no reason to change now.

I think I have settled on one of these two.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202003

or

Difference being the Vapor-X can be OC and 20.00(not enough of a financial difference to make me care). Are these okay or would someone have a different recommendation.

I like the idea of a couple of free games since my only one is Skyrim.

these are great cards. yet get the GHZ edition.. if'm right it has dual bios and you can switch to any... i don't know if the OC has that feature
