shop around you can pick up a 7950 for less than 280

7950 Boost is clocked at i believe 925mhz
That GTX 760 was clocked at 980

I just dont see the 7950 coming back from behind that much with overclocking.

7950 is a LITTLE bit faster when both are overclocked

7950 is also a LITTLE cheaper and comes with an extra GB of video ram. It's really a no-brainer

The price you listed for the 7970 seems a bit high. Out of what you listed, at the prices you listed, Id go after the 7950. I would also suggest you to shop around for 7970s because the prices have been falling significantly.

I'm running two of these in my gaming setup

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202026

Bought them when they were around $260. $520 setup. They've also brought in about ~$250 from mining part-time thumb.gif

I'd go with a 7970, but see if you can get one used from eBay, they sell for around $300 (that's where I got mine from). A single 7970 is just enough for 1440p, gets you around 40-70 fps depending on the game, settings and your overclock. I'd get a used 7970 now, then XFire for cheap when the new gen of AMD cards comes out. That will last you nicely into when 20nm comes out.

Also, those prices are in AUD from pccasegear.com and everything in Australia is overpriced! lol

Does anyone know how good the Powercolor HD7950 Boost is?
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1311&products_id=24649
Or for $30 more would the sapphire HD7950 OC Edition be better?
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1311&products_id=22949
Too be honest, I just like the black PCB, and the Powercolor one says about the 4 free games, though I think that applies to all 7950's anyway biggrin.gif

Edit: I do plan on overclocking, so does anyone know whether either have locked voltages?

OP go with sapphire. powercolor is ok but sapphire has better cooling and is a better brand.

It's $70 difference in Australia.

Sapphires are good but who cares they are all voltage locked now, you're basically trolling with a biased opinion when clearly the powercolor card is a better deal.

I have a dual-x based ont eh 7970 PCB all the latest revsiions of the sapphires are cheap crap tbh as good/bad as anything else.

OP don't waste your money because of the brand loyalty, both have a 2 year warranty.

$600 vs $740 and they'll play games exactly the same.

looking at the cards in your poll I'd go for the MSI 760 because $500 cards are a joke.

Only a $30 difference per card? And also, if the voltage is locked, does that mean I won't be able to overclock it? I'm reasonably new to all this tongue.gif
