€‎HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 VS ASUS GTX 580 DCII 1.5GB

What would you prefer? (leave the budget consideration for a moment)
Which one is more powerful?
Which one will "last longer"? (will be able to run games better in the future)

  1. You have not asked a question my friend. No thread title :D

    Mactronix :)
  2. I prefer
  3. Weird. I DID put a title before submitting this thread :P

    Anyway - Fixed.
  4. the 7950 will be my choice, it runs cooler and uses less power while giving you the same performance generally.

    The 7950 also has a lot of OC potential and driver improvement headroom.
  5. If they are the same price where you are the the 7950 is the better card. I would say that unless the GTX is about $50 cheaper then get the 7950.

  6. Actually for another 100$ I can get the 7970, which I guess that is more powerful than both of the above mentioned GPU's.

    You think that the price gap between the 580/7950 to the 7970 is worth it?

    There is no price difference between 580 to 7950, so...
  7. I went eventually for the 7970 :)
  8. Ok hope you enjoy it sorry to not reply last night .

    Mactronix :)
  9. Thanks :)
