After thinking long and hard about it im going to get a 7950 later in the week to go with my 7970.Im looking at the saphire overclocked edition which is said to do 1100 mhz + pretty easily.Either way i was planning on only running 2 7970's at 1000 mhz anyways so after looking at benches the 7950/70 are within a few frames of eachother clock for clock so figured id save 140$ over the msi 7970 and just get a cool running good overclocking 7950.anyone done this yet and if so were there any issues?im thinking i should be good since there both in the 7900 family.any feedback would be great.a few fps just isnt worth 140$ to me.Im pretty sure a 7950 running at 1000 mhz will beat out a stock 7970 anyways so i should still get awesome performance

whatever happens it will run the same as the slowest card remember also clock speed isnt the only difference between the 2 cards its the stream process etc too. but yes it should be possible remember also you may not be able to overclock the 7950 as hard due to the extra heat right next door in the form of the 7970

True i agree the heat will be an issue overclocking but my 7970 does 1125 without even touching voltage and the 7950 should hit 1100 mhz for sure running as a single card.Im pretty sure ill beable to run at 1000 mhz no problem but i guess will see.To bad the 7950's dont unlock to 70's lol.Ya greg i agree if i can get these running at 1000 mhz I would be running better then 2 7970's at stock id think.Personally i think this is a good move but i guess will see lol.One last thing figuring i shouldnt have to touch the voltage to much the heat really shouldnt be to much of an issue.Theres barley any increase going from 900 mhz to 1100 on my 70
