Ok so I have found a powercolor 7950 like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and a REFURBISHED XFX BE 7950 like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for about the same price.... What should I go for?

This is for a new system I am planning to build with a i5 3570k and it is for gaming

Obviously the not refurbished one by power color.

The thing is, neither of those are amazing brands. I'd go with a more reliable 7870, myself.

I would always go for the new one, and that is a good deal.

Is it ok to buy older or discontinued cards though?

Older cards have usually less features.
Discontinued cards always are Hard to find.

So get that Gigabyte one I recommended.
