I'm getting ready for a new card. Seeing Crysis 3 stutter is pissing me off.

I am currently running without my water cooling all set up. i plan on setting it back up in a few weeks but am too lazy atm.

my 6950 is fast but she will sell for a decent price and im looking for a 7000 series card.

I was going to get a 7870 but sold an extra monitor i had laying around so $300 aint that bad.

I'm thinking a Sapphire 7950. is that the best card for $300?

not really. HD 7950 is 15 - 20% faster at the same clocks.
