Hello,

I purchased two Sapphire 7950 Boost cards but I don't feel 100% comfortable with the purchase. The main reason is the PCB's ugly color. And I don't really know if an 7950 overclocked is better then 760 overclocked. I bought the 7950's for $220. I'm wondering If I should refuse to recive the cards and get a refund and buy EVGA or MSI's 760 card for $260.

Your thoughts? I really need to decide. The 7950 are already shipped and I have like 4 days to decide if refuse and get 760 or keep'em.

This is the Sapphire card.

Please help me!

Well the 760 comes with 1GB less VRAM but is slightly faster at 1080p (techpowerup)than the 7950 so it is up to you really.

As for a OC, every card is different thanks to the annoying silicon lottery that I have never won

EDIT: forgot to mention the 760 will consume less power and should run cooler

While the 760 may be faster at stock, you can overclock the 7950 to 7970 speeds, beating a 760. Also what color are the PCB's? Are they an ugly blue color? I have a 7970 that color, hid it under my one with a black PCB.
