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

I've been looking at these two cards but 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!

if u r using more then 1080P ( 2 screens, or a screen with a higher resolution then 1920x1080), then i would go for 7950.
also, with the new amd promotion you get 3 free games with the 7950, and 2 free games with the 7870, so if u are interested in the games they are offering that might affect ur decision.

the diffrence in performence between the dude in real life applications would probably be around 5-9% , so decide for your self if thats worth the cash diffrence ( obviously that's something only u can decide)

Honestly I would go with neither of these cards... wait until you have enough money and buy an AMD r9 270x or an 7970 I don't think either get free games and what are you using this for? if gaming then one of these graphics cards will suit you better. Its worth saving the money.

Hope this helped :D

The 7950 for sure. Because its faster and overclocks like a champ. Mine from Sapphire is at 1050Mhz up from 850Mhz. Practically 7970 performance.

But it appears to be discontinued?
