  1. 7950 will blow that nvidia card out of the water.
  2. Exactly with the new AMD drivers, they optimized the performance of their cards a lot. The 7950 will be a lot faster, there's no contest it's a better bang for the bucks.

    The AMD card also has a 384-bit memory interface while the nvidia only has 192-bit. This might not play a big role right now, but I'd be afraid this limited bus could eventually become a bottleneck for nvidia in future games if you plan to keep the card for long.
  3. Ty very much guys i'll take your opinions in account BUT would this huge monster fit into my cleveland gl8? Btw here is the link for my pc's specs:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c03006969 And also i'm just going for 1080p gaming at high-very high settings and that asus is overclocked till 1150 mhz and its memory up to 1750 mhz i think.And i pretty much love this card.Please help me not regret my buy
  4. You can go with the Radeon HD 7950 with eyes closed. Also take a look at Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT (Tahiti LE) Overclocked performance that it performs same as the Radeon HD 7970 (925Mhz version)

    If the case layout is what I think it is you'll probably need to saw out one of the hard drive slots.
  6. Go with 7950!
  7. Whoa guys you've been really helpful and looks like i'll stick with the 7950 boost.2 questions though:How much is its max overlock frequency and will it be able to run games like far cry 3 on very high settings 1080p with at least 4x msaa at 30-45 fps?And that comment about sawing my hard disk slot kinda frightened me:P what does that mean?
  8. Just to ease ya guys here's my specs:
    Processor:Intel core i5 2310
    Ram:4 gb ddr3
    Current graphic card(some random shit in my opinion): ati radeon hd 6570 2gb
    Hard drive: 500 gb
    Power supply: 500W
    Computer case:ATX

    Oh just to add guys this is a link to a site with the 7950's prices.It's in greek but i can translate it for you or you can use google translate:https://www.skroutz.gr/c/55/kartes-grafikwn-vga.html?from=catspan&keyphrase=7950

    Drivers are good right now but in lets say 1 month as ati is known for it will fail.

    Dont forget not everyone wants to overclock.

    The drivers have only increased performance...
    I doubt AMD will release drivers in a month that decrease performance by 5-20%

    Ty very much bro!!Respect your opinion and i just want a card that can handle future games at 1080p high-very high settings and that gtx 670 pretty much covers that
  16. Its quite sometime since last post but I am building a PC for gaming and I am researching Saphire 7950 Vapor . I was looking at your post and looks like your power source is not enough for 7950 boost. Here they recommend at least 700 + watts with gold or higher rating.
