7870 vs 7950

Hi all,
I have been looking at building my first gaming pc and I was wondering which graphics card I should get
Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 Ghz edition £187
Or
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 OC vapor X £237

Which card should I get?
I will be playing on one (or two) 1920x1080 monitors.
I also want the graphics card to last a long time.
Thanks :)

  1. 7950 for sure. I have a Sapphire 7870 and it isn't quite powerful enough for me.
  2. Okay thanks. Is it really worth the extra £50 though?
  3. Well that's for you to decide. I think it is. Have a look for yourself. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=550
  4. Okay thanks, i'll stick with the 7950 as I also know that its an overclocking monster and can sometimes even beat a stock GTX 680 when heavily overclocked
    Cheers
  5. Since you are going to over clock get this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127667
  6. Im gonna stick with the sapphire oc version as its quite a lot cheaper than the above model. Plus the cooler on the vapor X model is very good for overclocking ive heard.
    Thanks again
