Just wondering if there any any comparisons between these two cards? Can't seem to find any after a quick Google, besides but they are just estimated

And you do the spelling and proper grammer please. I know the 7870 is faster, I would like to see some comparative benchmarks. I didn't ask which one is faster.

I see no reason for that upgrade, the HD 6950 is still strong enough to handle any game out there @ 1080P and the HD 7870 is just as strong as GTX 580.

I have the HD 6950, very satisfied with it, I guess I'll upgrade when the HD 8000 series come out.

Well it's not an upgrade. I'm building a rig soon-ish. See this thread.

I'll take a look at those links later when I get the chance.

Grammar? Maybe:p

iirc hd 6950 are oos in most retailers in us and if they were available the price is around +$250 which is not worth getting at this point( you can get gtx 570 at that price AR),not sure about canada though, out of those 3 that you listed i think hd 7870 will give you the best fps since performance ~gtx 580 and it's only cost around $350, you might want to take a look at 7850(~$250 in US) since it performed around 6950 level with less heat and consume less power (which mean more overclocking).

Thanks, I'll have a look this evening.
