I have one single 1920x1080 monitor and will not buy another anyitme soon. Price difference is $70 without tax is it worth it for the 7950? I will do older gaming like age of empires and dirt 3

If you "Don't" plan on playing like THE most upcomming titles then the 7870 will be perfect. But even the 7870 should even play those well.

Recommended for Dirt 3 is a Nvidia GTX 280 or AMD 4890.

From what ive seen, the 7870 is far above those, and the 7950 even further.

Personally I would go the extra $70 and get a 7950, this thing is a beast! And if you overclock it the amount of performance you can pull out of the card is worth the extra.

Hard to say. Tech goes down in value over time. Spend more money now, Get a higher sell price in the future, or vice versa
