xfx 7870 or 8000 series.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey. I can get a xfx 7870 new for 235 $ but should i wait for 8000 series?

I need the design for my build aswell! The same red, silver and black scheme and those finnishes. Will i find the performance + color scheme and price point in an 8000 series card?

The xfx 7000 series fits my build perfect. And that i save 22% on that 7870 now = all in all 235$

Thanks smile.gif

235 for a 7870? that is a bit much . and also there won't be a HD8000 cards for desktops. The HD8000 is currently used in laptops. Also the new AMD cards (R280X9 something like that :tongue.gif) are rumored to be a beast. I say wait. but definatly dont get that 7870.

This HD 7870 is good in my opinion and a lot cheaper.

EDIT: The whole HD 7000 series will get cheaper after the release on the new gen cards. So get a 7950 instead.

If i was you, i'd get the sapphire but it does not fit your color needs.

Also for AMD cards you should go with sapphire, asus,gigabyte or HIS .

Sadly both my XFX AMD/ATI cards have had fan issues within the first 12 months, so can't positively recommend them....

just checked prices again. its 247.48$ actually in norway thats kinda cheap...

my problem is that i have now:

corsair vengeance pro silver, planning on adding a dual red kit

Gigabyte UD4H red and silver scheme, the vengeance pro's fits perfect.

and all i need is a matching gpu but xfx series is the only that will fit PERFECT!

i do not game alot anymore but my old gaming blood cant handle lag so i cant just get a 7750 or whatever. i am also new to AMD have had one but at that time i did not know anything about computers.

my OCD Cant handle a blue/yellow/ Ugly gpu to not match my pc. so i am really sad about that there si no gpus out there to fit it.
