Is AMD 7950 really worth it???? It says it has some voltage problems in the reviews

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

but i can get this 660 ti for 294 and get a rebate and get it for 274 and its MSI....

So which one would be a better deal?????

Definitely the 7950, it will outperform it, and you can overclock it too to perform better.

You're also getting an amazing game deal with the 7950, no reason not to get it.

That was one bad review, everyone else ran fine. I wouldn't worry about that. The performance difference is measurable, but if you like the price of the 660 ti it's plenty fast enough.

if you only bought perfect reviews you either wouldn't buy anything or only buy no name stores the sell in low volume

+1 on the 7950. close enough, if not better, performance with the 660ti in all but a few cases with the recent drivers.

3 free games deal is a no-brainer, whether you like the title or not.

if for some reason you dislike FXAA and prefer high MSAA, the 7950 has the better advantage with a larger memory bandwidth to support higher graphics settings with less impact in performance.
