For single card the 7950 will perform better and with X-Fire RadeonPro will alleviate some of the issues that currently exist with X-Fire. However if you're holding out for a solution straight for AMD you may end up dissapointed for a while.

Depends on what games you play (they trade blows depending on which titles you play), i'd recommend holding out a bit longer for a 760ti which will likely be a 670 rebrand - for F@H Nvidia tends to do better, either card you can't really go wrong with as they are both excellent cards thumb.gif

i had a 7950 at stock with the i7 oc'ed to 4.5 and pretty much maxed out any games at 1080. maintains 60 minimum in bf3 mp. c3 at high and 4msaa was easy. the 7950 trade blows with the 670 and can even match 680 performance once oc'ed.
