Case: Rosewill Challenger

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78-LMT-S2P

Processor: AMD FX-8350 4.0Gghz 8 cores

GPU: Radeon 7870 2GB DDR5

PSU: Corsair TX 650 V2

SSD: Crucial M4 256GB (All games are located on here)

Really the on thing you are limited on is the mid range GPU. Other than that your system would have no problems running any game on max/ultra settings. These two Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite you might have problems running at ultra or high with that GPU but they still should run ok.

So my new question is, would the Radeon 7950 be a good solution?

If you aren't familiar with this GPU, here are the specs: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

The 7870 XT is a great bang for buck solution. It outperforms a reference GTX 660 and it comes close to beating a GTX 580. There really isn't anything wrong with the GPU.

Yes it is a great card but I want to be able to run most if not all games at ultra settings. I just purchased the 7870, so is it worth turning around and reselling it and then upgrading to the Radeon 7950? Or just keep the card?
