I have had a 5870 for 3 years now and I was thinking of uprading . Is the 7970 worth the upgrade? I play all PC games and want to play at the max settings. Especially elder scrolls online when it releases.
If you can play games at max settings I dont see why you would want to upgrade. Anyways I would wait for next gen 8xxx series to come out and then upgrade as newer cards will run cooler/ more efficient
In those comparisons the 7970 is getting almost twice the performance.
If your planning to play games like crysis 3 and far cry 3 with the new crytek engine at high fps on ultra high settings go for it. If you can play all the games you want to play completely maxed out no problem it's kind of a personal choice. You will be a little more future proofed but until you have the NEED for the card so you can play more games at higher details I wouldn't. But that's just me.
