Which GPU should I get?

Hi,

So after lots of pondering and research I have finally come down to a couple of cards that I am thinking about. I was leaning towards AMD but if anyone has any arguments for Nvidia then tell me. I was thinking about either the 7850 or the 7870 or the 6950 or the 6970 and then crossfire in the future. Any comments?

Thanks

-Mark

    Because, the 7800 and 7900 series uses the 28nm processor.

    You can get the same amount of power - IF NOT MORE. While being cooler, quiter, and having a higher overclock.
  6. the 7870 compares favorably against the 6950:

    the prices on the XFX are similar on newegg, but the sapphire 6950 cards are sub $200.
