Which 7950 should I get?

post #1 of 7

Hi guy's my current card is starting to die so I want to move onto a 7950 or maybe a GTX 760

Third Choice:

Nvidia option: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1511&products_id=24110&zenid=d05209f68f5ef5bc37a02de535007ed0

I'm pretty sure the 7950 will beat a GTX 760 any day but as just wanting your guy's option on what's the best choice. I want play games like Battlefield 3 also when Battlefield 4 comes out i'm wanting to aim more towards the powercolour because it's the cheapest one but will I notice much difference between them.

The Sapphire and MSI cards are some of the better ones that you can find. The Powercolor is a decent card but I would go with the Sapphire or MSI over it unless you find a Powercolor PCS+ 7950 for the same price as the Boost State V5.

Best guide to picking 7950s is right here: Belials Comprehensive Guide to 7950s

i would go with sapphire over msi for the 7950, friend just had a msi 7950 die randomly, he rma'd it, it took them 3 weeks to get it back to him, turned out they sent him the exact same card and tried to pass it off as a new working condition one, even though it had the same exact scratches on the cooler that he sent it off with, then they tried to give him hassle when he wanted them to replace it.

I actually had to replace a Powercolor 7950 Boost State V1 a while back when the VRMs overheated but Powercolor was nice enough to replace it with the PCS+ 7950 and the RMA went amazingly quick and smooth as butter. Very nice support staff and quick to get back to you but very heavy accents for their person answering the phones so it was a little hard to understand what they were saying.

You can sometimes get some shady people working as these companies but Powercolor and Sapphire are pretty good with their RMA service. Never had any experience with MSI.

The sound's really good I guess powercolour will be the back up choice if first one dosn't do to plan

get the sapphire HD 7950. GTX 760 is a slower card with lesser VRAM. so HD 7950 without a doubt.
