The 7970 is still better than the 1050, but not that much. It's hard to find a direct comparison, because of the age difference, but the 7970 might be 20% faster than the 1050. I would nevertheless recommend the 1050, because of drivers support (the 7970 is legacy), and power consumption (the 7970 sips maybe even three times as much as the 1050).
Okay thank you. I figured this was the better option seeing as the 1050 should last way longer cause of its age and what not. Thanks!!
