Hi,

We need the full system specs of the desktop you want to put it in including the PSU.

I must admit, you have confused me a little, the thread title is asking what is the best graphics card to buy, but in your last post it looks like you have made your mind up to cross fire? lol.

If you do crossfire then I would recommend getting a better psu, a decent branded 850 watt would be good.

Actually I think I misread it, so you are looking to buy 1 7950 for now.

What is your budget? The 7950 is a good card, or the GTX 760.
If you want to spend a bit more then the GTX 770 or HD 7970.

I would recommend getting a better psu for any of those cards really.

I'd agree with Paul, an 850W PSU (I have a Corsair Gold Modular) and stretch to a GTX 770 for the GPU.

Also you never mentioned a budget, so you could just get an Nvidia Titan and be done with it lol.
