7970 Tags: Graphics Cards Performance Graphics Product Last response: March 6, 2013 5:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share grassyuk March 6, 2013 4:09:16 PM I've been waiting for the 700 or 8000 series for quite a while now and i want more performance in Arma 3 (currently have 1gb 6870). Since they're more than a year old, would you say it's too late to invest in a 7000 series card and should i wait for the new gen?

Can you wait that long? regularguy290 March 6, 2013 4:41:03 PM last i heard the new 8000 series is coming late in the year. still a bit of a wait. if you're looking to upgrade now is good time, prices are low and the drivers are mostly figured out. Sapphire cards are really good. i'd recommend a 7950, they overclock very well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... grassyuk March 6, 2013 4:50:32 PM Okay screw waiting, it's either the 7970 or 7950 i can afford the 7970 but i don't know if its worth the price increase. i'm in the UK also. Edit - Theres about £100 difference or so between the cards however there are some cheaper 7950s and 7970s around. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11196-09-40G-HD7950-Va... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11197-12-40G-HD7970-Va... rolli59 a c 1004 U Graphics card March 6, 2013 5:02:02 PM I did not think that the performance difference was worth the price difference and hence vent with a 900MHz 7950.
