Hello, I'm about to build my first computer and was going to get a 570 for my gpu but then I was told about the newer 7870's coming out. I then found out that this card was back in stock at newegg. I'm trying to firgure out if it is worth the extra cash to get a 7950 over a 7870 and if the i5 is enough for the card. This is my build if it helps at all http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... . I intend to use it for CAD work such as AutoCAD, Revit, SolidWorks etc; and also gaming.

Your i5 would drive a 7950 no problem. The 7870 is definately cheaper, but it is also a weaker card.

I have the XFX 7950 Core edition (somewhat of a lesser version of the Double D). and it seems good - although I haven't had time to test it throughly yet.

I have a 7970 Double D edition from XFX... The Double -D's were built to overclock like its no one's buisness. :D 

I am sure that you would be able to max your 7950 DD out in CCC and see framerates that would make you feel like you have a stock 7970 in your system. Imo, a better value dollar per dollar then a stock 7870.

Good luck with whichever way you choose to go!
