Thankfully I stopped buying Saphire.

They are the worst.

Why I asked is, I might be able to get a 7950 for $200.

unless I'm mistaken, there's really not anything you can do to a 7950 to make it compare to the performance of a 780, but you'd certainly save some cash and still get respectable performance.

Yeah I am all about saving cash. I rarely buy the best of the best. I only buy best of the best when buying phones.

that question pretty much comes down to "should I spend $30 or should I spend $280?", which is a decision based on your finances. You'll get corresponding performance either way. If the money is expendable, go fancy. If doing that means little gdubc junior goes without new shoes, go for the mild upgrade.

Personally when it comes to things like gpus, I prefer going with slightly lower-end stuff and just upgrading more frequently. Going top-end often results in pressure to keep the thing for longer, watching with some remorse as newer lower-end stuff surpasses it (not always the case, though).

Yea that is why I got a 7870 ($229), but not having greater than 2GB of ram has been bugging me for some reason.

Can all 7950s do 1ghz?

7950 at 1 GHz is still behind HD 7970 GE which is itself behind the GTX 780 by around 22%.
All 7950s can do 1 GHz but probably not all of them can do it on stock voltage.
