Q: About to pick up a Sapp. 7950 boost Vapor X and I already have a Sapp. 7870 XT

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've aquired an Amazon giftcard and kind of want some more gaming performance out of my main rig. I already have a 7870 XT kicked up to 1200/1500 with stock Voltage (it's locked).
I know the 29x stats just got released, and it looks like a 7950 xfired with my 7870xt could push some decent performance out of anything I could get around the same price from the new series ~200$ with a single card...

So question, is it worth the price to pick up the Sapp. 7950 Vapor X for Xfire with a 7870XT or should I just hold on to my moneys and wait to get a new gen equivalent to a 7950 for more moneys?

Thanks OCN. smile.gif

I would just wait for the new series.

wait for Hawaii Pro. better to sell the Sapphire HD 7870 XT and go for single Hawaii Pro aka R290. if you sell now you might get upto USD 150 for the Sapphire HD 7870 XT. a voltage overclocked Hawaii Pro at 1.2 ghz will get quite close to HD 7950 CF while providing all the benefits of single GPU. consistent performance, lower frametimes, smoother gameplay, lower power, lower heat and noise. as a bonus BF4 is expected to be bundled with Hawaii pro. thumb.gif
