Which should I get?

So I had a samsung 830 128gb in the checkout and just couldn't pull the trigger. I just don't know if it's worth getting a ssd. I could put the money towards gaming performance( about 90% of what I use my rig for) by selling my hd 7870 for like $180-$200 and get a hd 7950. I know that it's a little weird to sell my 7870 that I just got 3 months ago. It's better load time vs better gaming performance I can't decide :pt1cable: I think I'm leaning towards the 7950 but I've never had a ssd so I need a little help deciding. I'm on a very tight budget that's why this is a tough decision.

More about which
  1. Best answer
    Get the ssd, the 7870 is still a good card, and if you wait like 4 months new amd graphics cards should be out, ssds are worth it for sure
  2. If you want a new gpu save for the 8XXXs. SSDs are ok. Really if you have enough memory, use sleep mode, and don't play games with massive load times is rather Meh. FPS trumps a feeling of "snappiness" launching your email program or 10 seconds on boot, when you only do it once a month.

    Really depends on your use. My work laptop could use one. in my gaming PC it's ok if you have the cash
  3. I'm happy with my 7870 and it would make more sense to wait for the new cards. Saving money and me don't get along so well so I have to get something ssd it is :D
