If i get a 7950 vs. a 7850 will i save money? Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire Graphics Last response: July 7, 2012 3:30 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Xioms July 7, 2012 3:23:20 PM Im sure the 7850 would have to have to be upgraded much sooner than the 7950 will, even with crossfire. but that means ill have to get a 750w psu so the real question is: will i save money in the long run?
