I would also get an aftermarket cooler an OC the heck out of that CPU. If crossfire is not an option. Go with a 7870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125418 | Report abuse tr1x- January 5, 2013 6:32:36 AM Hi Blazn, Or try selling your 7750 and get a 7870 LE :-) 7870 LE almost out-performs the 7950 at some points (defenetly price/quality wise) even when oc, competes with a gtx660ti Goodluck buddie | Report abuse Best solution Sumukh_Bhagat Homebuilt system Expert January 5, 2013 8:30:12 AM tr1x- said:Hi Blazn, Or try selling your 7750 and get a 7870 LE :-) 7870 LE almost out-performs the 7950 at some points (defenetly price/quality wise) even when oc, competes with a gtx660ti Goodluck buddie LE is just a Gimmick. And comparing Overclock 7870 to a Stock 7950 is Stupidity. You can Overclock high and Leave the Overclocked 7870 in the Dust. So, getting 7950 over 7870 is worth it. | Report abuse Related ressources Need opinions on upgrades - Forum Upgrading looking for opinions and suggestions - Forum Need an opinion on upgrades - Forum Upcoming build, looking for opinions or thoughts. - Forum What would be the recommended Upgrades /changes to make to my PC - Forum Ask the community Publish Blazn January 6, 2013 2:06:05 PM i plan to crossfire down the road but not with the gpu i have currently i was thinking about the msi hawk is that a good card | Report abuse Blazn January 6, 2013 2:08:55 PM thinking of waiting till i get tax's back and crossfireing 660ti or 7950 idk what way would be better though but i am partial to amd products | Report abuse Blazn January 6, 2013 2:11:16 PM but as far as a aftermarket cpu cooler what recommendations would you all givre? | Report abuse Blazn January 6, 2013 2:43:38 PM Best answer selected by Blazn. | Report abuse Sumukh_Bhagat Homebuilt system Expert January 7, 2013 12:41:45 AM CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo A good Fan | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Looking to make some upgrades need opinions> Related ressources: ForumNeed some opinions on these upgrades ForumMy next upgrade move, looking for opinions (yes another one) ForumUpgrading case and looking for opinions ForumLooking for a new GAME to play, need advice, opinions ForumBuilding new PC, need CPU opinions .
