Hi, am looking at some graphic cards for new gaming rig. I hear nothing but good things about the 7950 but I'm not sure I want to overclock it.
Does overclocking wear down the graphics card? Is it easy to overclock?
Would the 7950 HIS IceQ X2 Boost Clock Edition be better or should I just buy a 7970 without the IceQ? The difference in price is about 95 dollars
If the difference in price is about 95 dollars just buy a 7970 without the IceQ and then overclock it 1125MHz+ easily with MSI Afterburner so it will run much more faster than the 7950 HIS IceQ X2 Boost Clock Edition .
What is the IceQ anyway? WIll overclocking the 7970 burn it out faster? I'd like for this PC to last at least a 2-3 years. Thanks
