Hi all

I am building a Gaming pc and will be gaming on a 1080p 40" TV

What is the best graphics card to get-I am considering gtx 580 or HD 7950. Ive heard good things about 2 gtx 560 ti's but I dont want microstuttering issues

Specs Im thinking of going with:

i5 2500k (oc to abut 4ghz)
asrock p67 extreme 4
cooler master 922 case
hyper 212 evo cpu fan
WD caviar black 1tb hdd
8GB Gskill 1600

Help would be much appreciated!

Good idea, Thanks
Will the 7950 outperform a gtx 580, because where I am, I can get the 580 for $25 less

PSU is Corsair Gs800 800W

According to the link it will, whether or not that increase is worth $25 is entirely subjective. :) 

I really like EVGA so I lean to Nvidia cards when performance is roughly equal, so it may come down to something as simple as preference.
