Is it worth the hassle and money to send in my Gigabyte 660 oc in for a 7950? It's cool/silent fits in my matx case and runs all the games that I want to run. But some part of me keeps thinking that I should go for a 7950. I look at benchmarks and the difference in performance doesn't seem that far off for most games I play, not having 8x AA is not big deal for me. All threads allude that I should have gone 7870 series and so on. Any opinions? Thanks

Honestly if you have a 660 and as he said before if your happy with it and dont do x8aa then keep it its not a bad card by no means..Same situation with me i have the 660 Ti and yea i know the 670 is a bit better along with the 7950 but i dont do anything over 1080p/x4aa and mainly i play on high/ultra settings so im happy with my choice and i do well with all the games ive own so far

In today's games a factory oced 660 will be enough as it provides almost 580 like performance.
Although the performance difference may increase between a 660 and 7950 in the coming games, you'll have to spend 50% the cost of 660 more to get a 7950.
