Hi guyz, I checked the price of these two cards in the market, the powercolor hd 7970 is almost priced the same with the sapphire hd 7950 oc. as we all know, powercolor is cheaper than sapphire that's why they come up with the same price. but sapphire has the reputation and the largest AMD radeon manufacturer, So im confused, which one I will get, the powercolor 7970 or the sapphire 7950 oc.

Stupid question.

If you can get 7970 at the same Price of 7950, then you would be stupid to pick up 7950.

Get the 7970. It will be faster at stock and you can overclock it further. Powercolour is a pretty good brand too so go for it.

@lostgamer, thanks for the harsh comment, of course I would go for the 7970 if I can, but thing is, its a powercolor.

Best solution

A powercolor is a good brand mate. Its a certified board partner so you can't go wrong. If you have had bad experiences with them or just don't want to pick them the go ahead at get the OCed 7950. It will perform slower than the 7970 but will be enough for all modern games.
