    Better idea of what to choose they are about the same but 3gb will be more effective

    That in the end makes a big difference you won't be limited by resolution with 3gb as opposed to 2 gb Vram

    You can also flash a 7950 to a 7970
    Can you tell me more about this flashing?
    The 7900's have dual bios one is write protected that would be #2 the #1 is the only flash-able one if you botch the #1 you can always switch to #2 and there is a way to fix the bad Bios with ATIWINFLASH

    Also it doesn't void warranty I sent in a flashed 7970 just a month ago and got a new one back

    You can save some serious coin getting a 7950 vs 7970. Tommy, after flashing the 7950 to 7970 what's the catch compared to a 7970

    I have original 7970's mine were flashed for higher clocks and less voltage

    7950's on the other hand are 7970's that didn't make the 7970 cut

    Most of the time for AMD anyway 6900 series 6950 can be turned into a 6970 same with the later it's because they disable some of the stream processors or something to that effect once you flash it you have everything there

    So would the HD 7950 be better than? I can see that the HD 7970 is up the list. PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmarks - High End Video Cards So is the GTX 760 better or the HD 7950 or HD 7970?

    It boils down to brand and if you like overclocking it if not go 760 if you wan to overclock it and rev it up then 7950

    Or you could wait a couple of weeks and have a look at the new AMD R9 series, the R9 270 is $200, the R9 280 is $300 , No price for the top R9 290X yet though but I think they will all perform very well.

    no, there will be NO bottleneck with an 8350 and 7970 or 7950. Are you still playing at 1280x720?

    break down:

    GTX 760 and 7950= SAME PERFORMANCE
    7970= best performance

    7950=$220
    gtx 760=$260
    7970=$310

    IMO if playing on 1080p with one monitor, the 7950 is your best bang for the buck. tagged with the 8350, its a great rig. it will play almost all current games maxed out, and will do so in the next few months to 1 year of games.

    if you want to get into overclocking and such, then you can flash a bios and overclock, and make the world go round faster.

    if you can spend more, go with the 7970, if you can spend more then 7970, go with a gtx 770.

    My friend has a Nvidia 700 series and it works pretty well without a overclock. But if I were you, I would wait for the new AMDs.
