Old GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

New GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Is this an upgrade, from 1x1.
(I'm buying two 7950's, but would one still be an upgrade?)

Also are the new GPU's MoBo Compatible?

you will see a night and day improvement in game performance...the question is can your current power supply support the top dog amd card power wise

im using 7970 on the same mobo...pcie 3.0 is backwards compatible so it will work

The performance will improve by around 50%. If you got 40 fps on your GTX 560 Ti, you'll get around 60 on HD 7950.
