7850 or 7870

January 14, 2013 6:04:24 PM

I was wondering exactly how much of a performance increase I would get by buying a 7870 over an overclocked (1GHz) 7850. There's only a $20 difference but that's $20 I could put into a motherboard or psu etc.

I like the his iceq cards with the fancy cooler because I plan to do Crossfire but if you like other brands please enlighten me.

The rest of my planned build

i5 3570k
corsair cx500m
msi z77a-g41
corsair vengeance 8gb (2x4)
WD green 1tb
light-on dvd-rom drive
Nzxt Phantom (enthusiast or 410 idk yet)
