Longevity of 7950 over 7850?

I am building a new comp that will be MOSTLY for D3, some NBA2k and possibly an FPS or two.

I recently made a thread mostly debating between 7870 and 7950. In that thread I learned about the stock core speeds and the overclocking capabilities of the 7850 and 7950.

Now I am contemplating 7850 vs 7950. The price difference is what really gets me. $250- 7850 vs $400- 7950.

Is the 7950 REALLY worth an extra $150? Or should I just spend $250 now and buy a new card in 2-3 years (or whenever need be)?

  1. Honestly there both good cards.The 7950 is the superior card but is it worth the extra money?Im not sure about that maybe you could just get a 7850 then a 2nd one when you need it if your rig supports xfire.
  2. i go with the cheaper card and save your money..by this time next year amd have there 8000 line of cards out.
