I'm looking for a good graphics card, and I was interested in the HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870, and was set on buying it, buuut the price was brought up 50 dollars overnight, and i'm tight on my budget.

Is there any difference between the HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 and the HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7850??

Please help, trying to pull the trigger on my first build, thanks!

The 7870 will be about 15% faster when comparing them at stock speeds. The 7850 is a good overclocker though, so you may be able to OC it up to 7870 performance levels. What resolution are you running and which games do you want to play? More demanding titles will benefit more from the 7870, especially at higher resolutions.
