The only reason to buy a last gen card most of the time is to add a 2nd card for crossfire/sli, otherwise they aren't usually a very good deal. The 7870 is 25% faster than the 7850 and the 7950 is 35% faster than the 7850. You'd be extremely lucky to OC it to 7870 levels. Why not just buy a new model card? The 270x is right between the 7870 and 7950 in performance and is $85 cheaper than the 7950. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
