Buddy and i want need advice on an AMD GPU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First off we are both coming from Team Green. He wants a 7870 I want either a 7870 or 7950. Here is our problem:

Is a Asus 7870GHZ better than a PowerColor 7870XT TAHITI? I was looking at the asus 7950 willi see a huge FPS difference if I want to sace money and go 7870GHZ?

Itll be a pretty good difference. I'd go with the 7950. You can OC it and get close to 7970 OC performance.

7870xt is the tahiti le version so based on the same pcb as the 7950 with some extras locked off such as shaders. Standard 7870 are bases on pitcairn.
