What Graphics card will get me higher fps on games like Farcry 3:
MSI HD7950 Twin Frozr AMD/ATI Graphics Card - 3GB, FX-795A-TDJC - 3GB XFX Radeon HD 7950 Double D, 5000MHz GDDR5, GPU 800MHz, DVI/DVI/HDMI/mDP OR
XFX HD 7870 DD Black Edition with Ghost Thermal and Hydrocell tech Graphics Card Eyefinity - 2GB, FX-787A-CDBC - 2GB XFX Radeon HD 7870 DD Black Edition, 5000MHz GDDR5, 28nm, GPU 1050MHz, 1280 Cores, DVI/ HDMI/ mDP

I was wondering as the first one has less MHz but 3gb but the other has 2gb with more Mhz

The 7950 will be far better; You can't just pay attention to clock speeds or the memory (which anything over 2GBs on 1080p is overkill), but also the stream processors. While the 7870 has a higher clock speed, it has far less stream processors, making it overall perform worse than the 7950. Also, were you to get a 7950, you could overclock quite a bit for a little more performance.
