I am thinking about upgrading from my 6970 to one of these two cards.
To anyone who owns one of the cards or has in depth knowledge of their performance please give me some advice on which one to buy or give a suggestion for another card. Budget is around $550
I play at 1920x1080 and play skyrim, crysis 2, the witcher 2, and metro 2033.
You can play all those games maxed out with AA with a oced (probably not even a significant oc) sapphire 7950 Vapor-X for 329.99 with 3 free games or you could wait for the 8870 to come out expected to be 279.99 and being on par or around there with a 680 in late 1st quarter next year or early 2nd quarter.
