Hmmm, I was looking through the reviews of that card and it seems that some people were having that problem.

In my opinion, 7950 to 290/290X or 780 is still not enough of an upgrade to be really worthwhile. 780ti or equivalent would be the minimum upgrade I'd do.

I would just wait for next gen cards to come out and for better prices on 780ti future equivalents. Or if you really feel you must upgrade now, get a used second 7950 for ~$150 and crossfire. Crossfire 2 x 7950s is about equal to 780ti (when crossfire works, of course)

Two of these will cost me about 330 USD after mail in rebates and discounts. Is it worth it?

Yikes, no. XFX didn't have the best coolers/performance on Pitcairn. Go for a single 290/780 instead of 2 less powerful cards than what you currently have. If you experience games with no CFX/SLI, you will regret the "upgrade".

I thought so but someone claimed that a 780 upgrade wouldn't be enough from a 7950. gunner2.gifsniper.gif

Within your budget, there is nothing better than a 780 and the one you linked is at a really good price for a good cooler too!

I was planning on water cooling it eventually so I don't really care for the cooler that's on there now.

Then make sure it is a reference PCB. A liquid cooled, overclocked 780 is a great performer.
