7870 or 7950?

Hello, I currently don't know which to get? The 7870 is only 210 bucks? But it the 7950 worth it being 310? Is the 3gb of vram and the higher memory bit bus really worth it? And also, I will be upgrading from a 6850. so what would be the performance boost from my card to these cards?

    Hmmm, how big is the difference between the two. because the 7870 I'm looking at is a ghz edition.

    hmmm, I think I will just get a 7870. It gives me the frames that I want. and don't think that an extra 5-10 frames is worth 100 bucks.
  11. Get what you like it's your money also it's allot more then 5 to 10 fps the 7950 is as fast as two 6850.

    In the benchmarks it didn't seem like it was more than 10 frames. But the 7870 maxes most games in the 40-60 frame range. which is fine for me.
  13. If 40fps is cool then yes it's good go for it.

  15. Some games scale well, some don't.
