Price for used Sapphire 7950

There's an ad on CL for a used 7950 for $420.
Newegg has it listed for $470.

I've been thinking about spending $350 for a 7850. Would the step up be worth it? And is $420 a fair price?

    For used? Hell no.
  2. I'm pretty sure the seller hasn't do much about this card because 7950 is just 3 months old. But It's better to get 7870 because it's almost the same as the 7950, but more than $100 cheaper than 7950 (for new). I wonder why 7850 is $350? I think you should get the 7870.
  3. 420$ for a used 7950 is not bad contrary to what these 2 say especially since overclocked a 7950 will beat out a stock 7970.7870 close to a 7950?are you nutts theres no comparison.Id get the used 7950.That card should hit 1100 mhz no problem dont listen to the 2 posters above.if it was a reference card id say knowway but this card was made for overclocking.If you can hit 1100 mhz you should beable to hang with a gtx 680 and for $420 that would be a steal.If you wont overclock then the 7870 would be a better bet
  4. You nutts, go look at this:



    4% difference

    Also, I have seen 7870 OC'd to 1200Mhz.

    ok now show me the overclocked difference way more then 4% guarentee you.sprry but for 100$ cheaper to be that close is something i just dont believe.
  6. maybe and overclocked 7870 vs a stock 7950 might be 4% but according to these benches and every other ive seen its 15-20% stock for stock.the difference between an overclocked 7870 and an overclocked 7950 would be more like 30% http://www.anandtech.com/Show/Index/5691?cPage=2&all=False&sort=0&page=6&slug=the-retail-radeon-hd-7870-review-his-7870-iceq-turbo-powercolor-pcs-hd7870
