hey guys, is the price difference to performance ratio worth getting an HD 7950 instead of an HD 7870? The difference is about $50 but Is that enough to justifly going from 2GB to 3GB, and 256 bit(1200Hz) to 384 bit(1250Hz)? The card will be for gaming, no video editing or anything like that. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated

I'm running a 7870. I've been very happy with this card especially considering the price I paid for it. Sure the 7950 is better.. if you have the money, go for it. I personally love to play in the $200-240 world. Keep the card for a year or so and sell it. It's a good price point to get a decent resale value without breaking the bank today.
