If you want to play crysis on max settings, i'd get the 7970 Ghz edition.
The 7950 can still play crysis on high settings, but if this is the main game you are playing, it is totally worth it to get the 7970. Otherwise the 7950 is sufficient for other games.
It won't be the "main" game I play per say, but I would like to max it out if possible. My 7870 OC runs the demo almost maxed, are you sure a 7970 is necessary to go ultra? And my main concern here is will the 7950 last me a couple years without having to upgrade?
