Sapphire HD 7950

Is anyone familiar with this specific card? I was interested in knowing how good it is and it was good choice. I want to get this specific card mostly because of the way it looks I really want a GPU with a red/black theme that is not horrible.

    That's a decent card, what's your budget though? I assume you'll be doing some higher end gaming at at least 1080p, correct? If I were to recommend any black and red card I'd say this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127741 It's quite a bit stronger than a 7950 at this point.
  2. Yeah mostly gaming, but you kinda the hit the mark. The MSI N770 was my second choice, I was just curious about the HD7950 because a lot of people said it gets too hot or you can do better etc. BTW budget is $1500

    Yeah 7950's are alright because you can overclock them to almost a 7970 in terms of performance, but Tahiti cores do tend to run a bit hot, not that it's too big of a deal. If I were you I'd say a 770 would be a great addition to your build, you get GPU Boost 2.0 which is nice if you don't want to void the warranty on the card, plus that MSI card looks super slick.
