Upgrading gpu, Which is more worth it HIS7850

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Which is more worth it/better
Price/performance is the 384 bit worth the 1gb lost on the card
I currently play games in eyefinity but been considering going to one large display

HIS7850, 4gb card, 256-bit interface

Or


HIS7950, 3gb card, 384-bit interface

What Resolution are you planning on gaming on? What is your current resolution of your eyefinity setup?

7950 no questions asked. Anyone recommending the 7850 is either crazy or trolling. Can't beat that card for the price, plus the HIS IceQ cards are very good thumb.gif

that 7870 is seriously overpriced
GET 7950, there is no reason that can justify buying 7870 even if you have 1440p monitor

That's actually a 7850... which makes it EVEN MORE overpriced thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif I guess that 4gb of VRAM must really appeal to people who don't know what they are doing tongue.gif
