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.
