Hi! biggrin.gif

im going to buy a new graphics card tomorrow
because my 560ti died recently
i was thinking of the 270x and the 7950?
which is the better? (1080p gaming)
i found a his 270x for about $167(7300 philippine peso)
and a his 7950 boost for just $160(7000 philippine peso)
both are second hand cards the 270x still has 1 year 6 months warranty while the 7950 has 6 months left..
what do you think would be a better buy?
games : battlefield 4, crysis 3, watchdogs, skyrim.
thx! smile.gif

The 7950 is the stronger card.


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

I'd go with the 7950. It is a much faster card.

The seller(s) being equal in reputation and trustworthiness.............

 

The HD 7950 would be my choice.  If a video card is taken care of, not abused or over-clocked the snot out of, and it works when it comes from out of the factory, then it's likely to keep on working until the day you want to get rid of it.

 

Either way, if your card craps out it's usually going to be a PITA getting warranty service on it.
