2) XFX DD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition (Tahiti LE) 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

I've been looking at these two cards i'm still not sure what card I should pick - due to the lack of reviews on the '1)' card. The £30 price difference is a factor I would like to consider but if you guys can give me some pros + cons and help me make a decision that would be great! PS - I'll be playing on a 30 inch 1080p monitor, I may get another 22 inch 1080p monitor. (One to play the game on and one to show my applications I have running etc.)

  1. What games, and what resolution? I have a XFX HD7870 DD that handles all of my games at 1920x1080 on very high to max settings, although I don't play any of the very latest demanding shooters. It doesn't get loud, but does radiate a fair amount of heat. I have no regrets over buying it.

    If I were to buy another monitor and to use one for just programs and applications and one for the game I was playing (both @ 1080p), do you think the extra 1GB of VRAM that the 7950 has to offer would make a difference to the performance? I play alot of DayZ atm and will probably play ArmA 3.

    Thanks for the reply.
  3. I'm not sure, but suspect it wouldn't be a thirty pound difference.
