7970 or 7950

I want to play BF3, MW2, Skyrim, and DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3 on max settings (not ultra) with no lag. Should I get the 7970 or the 7950? I could use the $ saved elsewhere, but I like the sound of the 7970 as well. :P

So, which Radeon card?

Oh, and my build is http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=13328589 with the i5-2500k being bought at Microcenter for $180+tax (I live in Texas), and a 21.5" ASUS Monitor for $145 (-$10 with MIR). The games I purchase totals $156, and are also included in budget.

    Well we might know in a while i'm guessing the 7950 will be cheaper then the 580 while being a little faster and run cooler and use less power. Its going to launch tomorrow i think.
  2. On newegg, there are about 5 7950s. :)

    HD 7950 for sure. Save the extra money for another one down the road or a nice SSD.
  5. I would think my SSD is good. :P

    EDIT: I decided on the 7950.
