  1. it would help to know the specs of your rig including PSU wattage. also where there any particular games you are thinking of?
  2. sapphire 7950 oc on is good but if u afford gtx 660tu then increase sum amount and get gtx 670 which is equal to 7970
  3. Well my specs are
    Core i5 3570k
    8gig RAM
    Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Mobo
    2TB WD Green
    Seasonic 750watts Power supply
    NZXT Phantom 410 case
  4. if you can afford it i would get the gtx 670 but if not then i would get the 7950. if you want to play borderlands 2 then you get it free with the 660 ti and gtx 670
  5. Gtx 670 is out of my reach...Coz im buying 2 cards for my rig & for my brothers rig...
    We usually play dota 2 , crysis ,BF3 & some more FPS & MMO games together..
    But my bro wants to play some upcoming games like NFS MW2 , crysis 3 etc at ultra settings... So , i need to know which is the best among these 3 cards mentioned up.

    nice. so no problem running any card on the planet :)

    first, i would like to state that i would be apprehensive at getting a card with 192 memory bus that costs more than $220. so i am not going to recommend the 660ti. that is my personal philosophy, right or wrong.

    looking quickly at a few reviews; according to these benchmarks the sapphire 7870 OC does hang out of the box with the sapphire 7950 OC; making it a good buy for price/performance.

    and according to these benchmarks the sapphire, when overclocked a little further (1100/7360) can surpass the XFX DD 7970; making it the best performing card IMHO.

    so, if you want the more powerful; get the 7950 and overclock it. though i must also state that mileage will vary when overclocking but if you only get (925/5500) it will still hang with any of the big boys.
  7. Sapphire 7950 OC, 1100 very possible on air, the VaporX can hit 1200 but its way more expensive.
  8. I guess going with HD 7950 will be a better choice..But one last question , can i CF without any problem from my PSU or should i upgrade???
  9. a 750 watt (esp a seasonic) will handle overclocked 7950s in CF no problem.
  10. Thanks for you help guys .
