Hi everyone I plan on building my first gaming pc soon. I have a budget of $250, and both cards push it the 7950 is 270 with rebates and things and the 7870 is 255. I know the 7950 would be better but I have heard mixed reviews about the xfx brand. Also the 7870 is out of stock nearly everywhere, but my brother has to go to Kingston in a few days for work and can pick one up, if it's still in stock.
Edit: I plan on using a 1080p for gaming and don't intend on overclocking
