ATI Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7950 Dual-X 3GB GDDR5 or Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Dual-X GDDR5 3G

What do you recommend taking it clear that I want to save as much money as you can as I need to change the Mobo. and there is as much difference between the two? since practically amount to the same thing and I'm confused.

  1. Best answer
    280X is the same as a 7970, slightly better than a 7950. Recommend the 280X.
  2. The 280X is simply better.
  3. Go for the 280x, you will get better performance in a reasonable price bracket. A cheaper 280x will only run about $40 more in the US
  4. +1 for the Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X OC http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FLMKNE0. It's a whole tier above the 7950.

    HD 7950 = R9 280
    HD 7970 = R9 280X

    Definitely go for the R9 280X since it offers the performance of a Radeon HD 7970 which is notably faster than a 7950. But if you can, I'd advise you to go for a R9 290 since you can find them under $270 now.
