Thats a nice card, its a non-reference and its got the windforce cooler on it, so you can get some nice overclocks on it. You may also want to check out the gtx660, its a bit cheaper, and has similar performance overall.

*THIS IS THE BEST DEAL BY FAR:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It is $285 after the rebate.

The HD7000 (HD7950/70) cards qualify for THREE FREE GAMES (value $170). That drops your cost for this card to $130 if you had planned to buy these games anyway!

AMD Never Settle info (note the HD7870 should come with just Far Cry 3):

SUMMARY:
$45 more than the other card gets you a BETTER card and $170 value in games!

Okay thanks, that looks great! Will an xfx 550w 80+ bronze certified be good enough?


The minimum recommended is a quality 500W PSU so you should be fine as long as it has the proper connectors (probably 2x 6-pin).

7870, best deal. It plays most games on Max setting.

Did you even READ my post?

The HD7950 is not only a better card, but it qualifies for $170 in games!

- Far Cry 3
- HitMan Absolution
- Sleeping Dogs
- Medal of Honor WarFighter Limited Edition (20% off digital deluxe)

*So you claim the HD7850 you linked is a better deal than a better card, with three games for free at a difference of only $45? Seriously?

**That's a FREE GAME for each of the three times you posted the other card was a better deal!!

+1 for 7950 with free games, but they are about $300. It's worth the stretch

If you plan on getting those games in the first place, then by all means get the hd7950.

It's only $45 more than the card he liked earlier; and again for that you get:
1) a better card
2) $170 in games

Even if you only paid $15 per game then you'd still be getting a better card for the same price ($285 - $45 for games).
