Hello, this is my first post here.

So, I want to upgrade my 570 to a Ati 7950. The only problem is that is it worth the upgrade? :heink: 
My 570 is OC'ed to Core-890 Mem-2000 with 1088mV.
I already went over through the benchmarks on here and some other user reviews and generaly it has better FPS than the 570 (but only up to 20FPS increase)
I mean to OC it as much as a stable clock is and CF them in a year or 2 when they can't max out the games I want to play.

Specs: i5-2310 (I know, rookie mistake, should've gone for a 2500K)
-Seasonic 650W PSU
-AsRock P67 Pro3 Mobo
-8 Gigs of Ram

My eyes are looking at the Sapphire 7950 dual fans, although I am leaning towards the Asus directCUII for better cooling and more silent fans.

I live in Croatia so not much help unless you are from there too.

the 7950 is a worthy upgrade in my opinion.
the asus direct cu II is a good card to go with.
you cannot expect a huge jump in fps in upgrades like this.unless you are upgrading from a very old card to the latest one...this is the best you can expect.

Its worth it.
But I would wait till Next-gen cards.
A GTX 570 would be enough to handle games till then

And SLI a GTX 570 will be not good. Because its a 1GB version.
Most games on eUltra 1080p cross 1GB of available VRAM.

So just wait it out with the 570? Well, I can play every game I throw at it so I guess I can wait a little more.
