Will 7950 have tearing performance along with my this rig?

Guys,I have a 18.5inch led monitor.
My config is:
PRO:i5 3470
Ram:8gb ddr3 1333
PSU:550watt (coolermaster or corsair){not decide}
MOBO:gigabyte b75 d3v
1)I am planning to buy 7950.a tech frnd told me that if i buy it will give me tearing performace cause i have 1366*768 RES. with 60 fps or hz.so the gpu will send more fps than needed that time.it will destroy gaming experience.is it true?he advice me to get 7850 2gb.
2)what if i set it 75hz?will still do prob?
3)Does powerful gpu more future proof?for example if 7850 protects 3 years of playing game smoothly than 7950 will protect 5 yrs,7990 will protects 7-8 years.M i right?
ABOUT ME:M a casual and normal gamer so not much hardcore about what i got in performance.i just want to play game smmothly that's it and want my gpu long run in future.one time investment.
N:B: Sorry 4 my BAD ENGLISH.

at that resolution, the 7950 would be overkill I would think. you can handle new games at low resolution with much cheaper cards. if you are getting any of the 7xxx cards, I would definitely get a better monitor.

I have not found much info on tearing, I would think that the system can be set up for lower resolutions, but i am not sure. I can't find anything online regarding the 7950 and tearing.

As for futureproofing, the cards will probably be good for about the same duration of time. advances in design might make all of them obsolete so you really can't say.

I can summarize some things:

1. Don't buy something of lower quality "cheaping-out" than you need for budget with the idea of buying a better quality item later. it is more expensive than just buying what you need now.

2. "super premium components like highend motherboards, video cards, gaming components are not future-proof". They are in the sense that they will last at this level which will remain exeptable for a while, but will not be as cost-effective as getting what you need now and then buying a newer card later when a new one is actually needed. it is more effective to buy a new card and sell your old one.

3. Standards change, requirements change, technology changes.

4. Storage and RAM decreases in cost as new types come out so it is less expensive to upgrade ram. Unless they are IDE or another standard that is going away because as supply goes down, price will go up.

It will run fine and what you mean by tearing? As in screen tearing or just plain old bad performance? What it will do is use more of your cpu since it's such a low res and not use the card as much. If I was you I would get a monitor or tv with a bigger res to fully use it to its max. Other then that yea card will work fine, just won't be used as much.

I believe that by tearing he meant it in a ''It will tear through games like hot knives through butter'' context.
