I run on a 1920x1080 resolution

Is this card worth getting over this one?

I've heard the power consumption is quite high for the Vapor-X but it apparently cools better?

Would you guys recommend any other graphics cards such as the 660 ti or any other AMD models around the same price range?

No the 7950 is a well rounded graphics card in that it is a high end card but doesn't hit the 350 buck mark meaning you save a lot over a 7970 or (especially) a GTX 680 while still having the ability to reach those aforementioned cards' performance through some simple OCing.

Anyways, to your suggested cards; both are good, the Vapor-X one will obviously cool a bit better but I'm not sure whether it merits a $30 price difference. In the end it's completely up to you (all aftermarket 7950s will perform pretty similarly). On the other hand, the Vapor-X one looks sexy (if you have a side window).
