Befor you buy-check around some sites that have compaired 7870,s with other cards like 7950,s-7970,s so on.
I was thinking on getting the 7950 becuz no way I could swing 400 to 550 for the 7970.
And was running a asus 6950 flashed to a full 6970. Was very skeptical about the 7870,s.
But after research and becuz couldn't find a 7950 for less than 340.00 and the asus 7870 on newegg is only 254.00 plus 20 rebate.
I desided on the 7870 on my new rig.
I HAVE NO REGRETS, it kicked my 6900 card all over the place.
plus easly oced to 1200/1525.And in my rig never gets above 56c under any benchmarking.
I have to say I was asumeing the 7870 would not be worth the upgrade, BUT I WAS terribly wrong.
Also if you check around on some of the testing on sites, it matched and in some cases out did the 7950.
I,m very glad I did not spend the extra 100. Plan to cross fire and watch these cards ROCK!!!
And I know it will do better than this score Edited by fishhawk - 3/20/13 at 11:31pm
